Oh yes you understand what i mean when i say that i have a long list with funky private projects. And all the projects only waiting to be developed but if you start with one you get a better and greater idea for a new project… and zappp your project list has one more entry.
And the same happend here… But after i read some great article about magic mirrors i thought.. damn… I want that too… Absolutely.
You know a magic mirror? If you now think about snow white your are close. But our magic mirror is much cooler!
Its an mirror that have in the back a display that gives you usefull information about your day like weather, news, traffic and much more.
Here are some similar projects:
All the projects are very cool and my intention is to pick up some great approaches from this projects and put them together with my ideas and build a magic mirror within the Windows 10 IoT platform in the next weeks.
Ok what stuff we need for this on start (this lists are the first ideas):
What we need:
- Raspberry Pi 3
- Power Supplys
- Picture Frame
- LED Monitor
- Spy glass or mirror foil
- Lot of wires
What we want to integrate:
- Bing Maps
- Face API
- Microsoft Flow
What could the magic mirror do for us:
- Show the weather
- Show the traffic
- Tell me every day that i am looking great
- Information about task/appointments for the (next) days
- Recognize the user in front of the mirror
- Twitter news
- Facebook news
- Date and time
Yes ok thats a lot of stuff we want to integrate but dont panic we start slow. Next time we will look how we can start to develope an UWP Application for it.
