2018: Magic Mirror
The magic mirror was made using a raspberry pi, a monitor and a 2-way mirror. Using and modifying the open source Magic Mirror2 code we set up the screen to display WiC events, the date and time, and some local news. By using a 2-way mirror we could have this display shine through so you can get some useful information while using a mirror. View Blog Post about this project.Documentation
