Smart Mirror by Max Braun

Max Braun is an idea man who doesn’t accept a problem. Instead, he tries his best to innovate and find new solutions. When he warmed to the notion of creating a smart mirror – i.e.: a mirror that behaves more like a smartphone or one of the walls, panels, or consoles popular in science fiction – it was only a matter of time.

Since he had no real prototype, Max had to guess several times during construction. Using a two-way mirror, a display panel, and a control board (along with other parts and more than a little technical know-how) Max has finally created a basic mirror that gives time, date, weather, and news headlines. It can be programmed to accomplish different tasks depending on the software loaded into it (mostly Android, Max says) and can be made to fit any size piece of glass, if you know what you’re doing.
