A smart mirror with voice interface control via ReSpeaker. We also connect with Wio Link to control other objects! Based on Raspberry Pi.
Something I’ve always wanted is a magic mirror. An advisor who’s near omniscient that I can ask for information. Growing up I imagined it being similar to the magic mirror from Shrek, witty, having great showmanship, and the ability to be a friend.
Well, I’m technically no longer a child. I’m 28 (10 at heart), and I’ll settle for what I can access around me and what my team can create. Technology has made this relatively simple to throw together. This project isn’t what’s describe above – it lacks the wit, could use some better showmanship, and is not omniscient (yet!) – but, it’s definitely real and not just part of our stories and imaginations. And the best part? It’s largely open source. That’s right, you can grab this yourself and create it – I hope with some changes and improvements you are willing to share.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
