How to turn your wall into a gesture-controlled smart mirror

For the price of a smartphone, see how you can transform your wall into a smart mirror

If you’re obsessed with your smartphone’s touch-enabled display, you’re absolutely going to love this. Thanks to Joey Cumeras Khan, a Spanish software developer posted the process of making his Interactive Smart Mirror and MirrorOS a couple of days back and you can imagine the amount of popularity it started gaining. Here are the features that the smart mirror featured:

  • Voice recognition with clap control
  • Gesture control
  • 24-inch 1080p screen
  • MirrorOS with app support (these apps ranged from news, search, radio, YouTube, gaming and much more)
  • Smartphone control

With all these really cool features, it would have certainly cost a fortune for the software developer to come up with this right? Fortunately, the cost mounted to just $441, which is the cost of a smartphone with very decent hardware and features. If you want to check what is part of the hardware list, those items have been detailed below:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Raspberry Pi 2 (a 3 would also probably work)
  • Raspberry Pi power adapter
  • microSD card
  • HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensors
  • 24-inch flat screen TV
  • HDMI cable
  • USB microphone
  • One-way glass panel
  • Frame and wall support

If the trend of smart mirrors starts to popularize, it will present a much simpler solution to see tons of information on a larger screen. In addition, accomplishing tasks for the next day and setting reminders will also become a much easier process altogether. Now, all that you will require is $441 dollars and be a wiz in software development, and you will soon have your own smart mirror.

Cumeras Khan’s operating system isn’t ready for publication quite yet, but he’s working on building software that is developer-focused so apps can be easily created. For the entire step-by-step process of how this impressive piece of technology came to be, check out the original Imgur post.
