So, now that all the hardware is done, it’s time to install the Raspberry Pi. To meet all the needs for the Magic Mirror, the Raspberry needs the following features:

  • Wifi connectivity
  • 90 degrees screen rotation to match the portrait screen orientation.
  • A local webserver to host the interface.
  • A browser running full screen to display the interface.

Being a guy while visiting a shopping city with your girlfriend may cause your mind to drift away while walking thru Macy’s. Or at least, this happened to me while i was visiting New York last january. 

Long story short: while wandering around I noticed a mirror with an illuminated sing on it. This is something i could built myself. Only better. I wanted my own Magic Mirror!
