Being born with the “hairy curse” means that I spend a solid ten minutes in front of the mirror each day shaving. It sure would be nice to be more productive during that time by being able to absorb some media while in front of the mirror. There are at least two smart mirror projects that make use of a raspberry pi:
I’m happy to see a commercial smart mirror pop up from Daptly with the intent on shipping units in December of 2017. Daptly will cost about 2x as a the roll your own Raspberry Pi version starting at $600. It supports gesture inputs and includes a built-in Alexa. The mirror is also fog resistant and heavily integrated with #iot world of lights, locks, security cameras and fitness trackers.
