In this video, we give 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.
*Note* we no longer sell these parts. In order to download the 3d printable files, visit our website: https://www.thehackershack.com/parts.html
If you don't have a 3d printer, you should be able to print the parts on a local community printer or with an online service like Shapeways.

You could also use a piece of one way film and a clear acrylic sheet

*NOTE* - 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: https://www.amazon.com/Mirror-Window-Film-Wide-Roll/dp/B004S7HPJ0/ref=pd_sim_201_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=PJC3NH7P1TA4X4Z9PRKT
We did not experiment with this, so results may vary.

Hi, I am facing a little difficulty in setting the location for the weather. I've already tried ui locale option and setting up the latitude and longitude of my country(india) but nothing seems to work.. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you
Next time don't use scissors to cut that stuff, use a straight edge and run a razor along it to score it then just snap it off cleanly and you'll have a straight edge with no cracks, just like cutting thicker glass or plexi.
I have made one, it is working awesome, I have some questions, because I am using raspberry pi for the screen behind the mirror to run the script, how to skip booting process at the beginning? run automatically the script and display date and time on mirror as soon as I power on just like we turn on lamp immediately after power on? in short how to use the smart mirror once setup and running well without needing to reconnect mouse and keyboard again just like a lamp or television set?
Hi, great video guys. I'm trying to follow the tutorial, but can you guys tell me what unit are you guys using for the 3D model file? I'm trying to 3D print the corner pieces but I don't know whether it should be cm or inch. Thank you!
Awesome! Have you guys thought of a way to change the mirror contents or even create different profiles and be able to change it via your phone (it could access a local webpage hosted on the raspberry pi itself).
glue will not be strong enough of a bond over time. it is strong, but it is not a mechanical bind. As far as cutting the plexi-glass, you have to score it with an exacto knife or box cutter, and then snap it.
There is a gap of information that is needed to properly load the software (video index 8:37). I am having a terrible time installing as indicated on the video. Any chance that a step by step written account is available?
Can I still make it or they have deleted repository ?? Because I am getting an error "Permission Denied(publickey). Fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Make sure you have correct access rights." #Help
Very cool - but an extremely high learning curve here for people like myself who have no programming or PC experience. I suppose the Raspberry Pi tutorial, the Linux tutorial, and the Python tutorial - the audience is completely on their own to figure those out or they shouldn't be building this. Still a very cool idea and video..
We were looking into using transparent OLED displays for "smart glasses", but they aren't widespread/cheap enough yet. You could try to use a "pepper's ghost effect" to reflect the clock on the glass. Check out our holographic display video for more information about that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrgGXQvAuR4
Hi i have this monitor model QD14XL07 REV:03
From my old broken laptop and i was wandering if you can tell me how i know if the monitor still working before i buy the board controller i hope you can help me and thanks
