making magic smart mirror glass has become easier and easier
Thanks to projects like MagicMirror by [MichMich], everything is done through modules, including very useful things, such as OctoMirror, which allows you to use OctoPrint to follow your 3D printer.
The electronic equipment here is very simple-[Forsyth Creations] uses the internal structure of the old display and the Raspberry Pi to provide the module as a web page. The only tricky part is the power supply, because the LCD needs a much higher voltage than the Pi and the absolutely necessary LEDs around the edges, but there are several buck converters that can solve the problem.
After removing all unnecessary plastic from the display, [Forsyth Creations] cut the rear frame and the front frame to support the electronic device. It is not a mirror glass, it is actually one-way acrylic, which is lighter and cheaper. [Forsyth Creations] designed and printed some corner support brackets, which can double as leveling screw holders, so that the acrylic panel can be dialed in just right. You can get these yourself from GitHub. We think this will be a good early carpentry project or a long weekend thing. [Forsyth Creations] built this on the balcony of the apartment in three days with a minimum of tools.
As a child, if my mother did not turn it off, I would have to watch the reflection of the lamp on the TV screen. This screen will fade on sunny days. Maybe in a bathroom with no windows and dim lighting for night visits. If I can't see the Gooseberry Radar on the screen that is always displayed, I don't want to see the silly icon and the weather's precipitation percentage.
