Interactive Smart Mirror
In a recent episode of The Fellowship of the Things, we constructed a smart mirror that displays weather data discreetly in the lower right corner. The idea is that while you performed morning tasks like brushing your teeth, putting on makeup, shaving, etc., you could glance at the weather for the day.
While the idea of sticking an LCD behind a one-way mirror is nothing new, we wanted to make ours more interactive. This version of the smart mirror uses an APDS-9960 Gesture Sensor so you can simply wave your hand to change the display.
For this build, you will need some electronics:
Additionally, you will need the following:
- 2.4" LCD
- Mirrored Window Film
- Window Film Installation Kit
- Foam Mounting Tape
- Spray paint (optional)
- Masking tape (optional)
- Styrofoam to raise the LCD
- Pins or screws to mount the electronics
