Smart Mirrors Are Now A Reality: In this video, Hacker House gives you some detailed instructions on how to make an easy raspberry pi powered home smart mirror. A smart mirror displays applications so that you can check the weather, local news, etc. while you are getting ready in the morning. It’s also modular, so you can easy move it around or hang it on the wall if you like. We’ve created a basic application that you can run on the smart mirror, but it’s totally customizable if you want to write some of your own code. We use a Raspberry Pi 3 in this video, but you can also use an A, B+ or any other Pi.

1 x Low-profile monitor (we used an old led display — something similar to this)
12 ft – 1×2
12 ft – 1×3
1 x Wood glue
1 x Low-profile HDMI cable (Click here)
1 x 18″ – 24″ Acrylic See-Through Mirror, 1mm (Click here)
The above mirror might be too flexible and cause some distortion if it is not sandwiched properly. You could also use a thicker piece of clear acrylic and apply some one-way mirror film: Click Here.
We did not experiment with this, so results may vary.
