Magic Mirror

I found this ornate frame at a thrift store and decided to create a Magic Mirror for my wife. It runs a dedicated web server from a Raspberry Pi displayed on a TV behind a piece of two-way mirror.

It shows our Google Calendar events, the weather, time and date, RSS news feeds, rotating compliments, and various other widgets that can be toggled with a smartphone. I also included a motion sensor to turn the display off unless someone is standing in front of the mirror.

You can see the full build process of this project on my Instructables page here.
