Personal assistant AI like Siri, Cortana and Alexa were the inspiration for our project.

What it does

Our mirror displays information about the weather, date, social media, news and nearby events.

How we built it

The mirror works by placing a monitor behind a two-way mirror and displaying information using multiple APIs. We integrated a Kinect so users can select that's being displayed using various gestures. We hosted our project with Azure

Challenges we ran into

Integrating the Kinect

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Integrating as many components as we did including the Kinect

What we learned

How to use Microsoft Azure and work with various APIs as well as use Visual Studio to interact with the Kinect

What's next for Microsoft Mirror

Implementing more features! We would like to explore more of Microsoft's Cognitive Services as well as utilize the Kinect in a more refined fashion.
