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.
