This workshop will guide you through the process of building a Magic Mirror using a Raspberry Pi. The Mirror can be configred to display a variety of information, such as weather forecasts, news, quotes, or calendars.
The follow material will be available for 5 working groups during the workshop:
Raspberry Pi 3 with power supply and SD card
Double-side mirror sheet
Computer monitor to be used with mirror
Keyboard and mouse
This workshop will be available for participants from all levels and backgrounds. This is an open event! All are welcome!
If you have no experience with setting up a Raspberry Pi, we can help you set it up during the workshop and guide you carefully through the entire process. However, we recommend that you attend a separate Raspberry Pi introductory session prior to this event at the uCreate Studio.
The Magic Mirrors that we will build during the workshop will have to remain in the Studio, as its components might be reused for other workshops or projects. If you wish to retain a Magic Mirror, you will need to bring all the required equipment with you on the day of the workshop.
