My Magic Mirrror
Hello to all forum.
Finally after a tones af reading, asking, searching I managed to finish and hang my mirror to the wall so it is time to share my effort with you.
The frame is regular wood. It is thicker than I thought but it is my first try.
I painted with grey chalkpaint and after my wife’s suggestion we gave it a vintage look before polish it.
The project is running on an Rpi 4B 4GB
The modules I am using are the follwing:
Behind the frame there is a 2m WS2812B which is powered from an external 5V power supply and controlled by an arduino. I have uploaded a schetch I found here with about 20 effects which I change from an extelnal push button. Also one raw of zimple RGB led strip running on an external 12V power supply. This one is used for GA statuses. It is usefull for me because I am using an old TV with built-in speakers. That means that when the TV is closed I have no audio either so when I use the command to turn it on I do not know if GA heard me or not. Any way here are some picures of my built.
I use two of these 12V fans to cool the frame
The circuit that drives the RGB led strip for GA status.
My mini control panel
And that is my final result
I hope you like my try. At this point I would like to thank everyboby who replied to my hundrends of questions and hepled me finish this project.
Special thanks and RESPECT to @bugsounet for his excellent wiki and recipes and for his patience!
