Magic Mirror!

The first thing I do after waking up after brushing my teeth is going out on my patio and enjoying the sun!

Now that the winter months have almost begun, I needed some way to know the temperature outside my apartment. However, I don’t like using my phone when I wake up. So I figured why not show the relevant info on the mirror!

And that is what I did. I hooked up my raspberry pi to a spare monitor display I had lying around, made a small UI to show the info, and attached a 2-way mirror over it, and voila!

I present to you, “The Magic Mirror”

It shows the weather, date, time, and some inspiring thoughts.
Oh! And it also knows when I am in front of it ☺
