We watched an awesome Youtube video of an MIT student's own implementation of a smart mirror and it looked awesome. It was beautifully made and included voice commands and useful widgets. This inspired us to make our own lightweight version with other features we thought would be useful.
What it does
The mirror has many functions, such as show time, weather, Google Calendar, and some extras that are controlled through voice recognition.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
At first, we wanted to run it on a RaspberryPi but there were lots of add-ons that we had to download and would have taken a long time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The great user interactions.
What we learned
What's next for Smart-Mirror
We are planning on making it larger and more "mirror-like" and touch screen in the future.
