DIY Voice-controlled Smart Mirror


Do you want to make your mirrors smart and convert them into a futuristic canvas that searches images, displays maps and controls the gadgets in your home? To make such thing possible, Evan Cohen has made a Smart Mirror and open sourced the complete details.

Evan Cohen has shared this open source project on GitHub and wrote that he was inspired by two other smart mirror creators Michael Teeuw and Hannah Mitt. The Smart Mirror project is inspired by HomeMirror and Michael Teeuw’s Magic Mirror. It uses annyang for voice interactivity, integrates with Philips Hue, and is my own take on what a “smart mirror” can be.
