    haha, I always love seeing computer tech guys try woodworking. Cutting by hand with a hack saw and a mitre box.

    I have 4 identical 24 inch led monitors I'd like to try this with (because I couldn't bring my self to try this with a large, functional led television). Do you have any ideas about what the effects of having multiple monitors behind the mirror might be?

    Thanks

    Hi, I got the following error messages after installation, when I start the: python smartmirror.py file:

    cool project. currently i am building it. i'd like to add an email & facebook notification receiver built-in the smart mirror software. kind of like the bottom right of windows 10 that shows the number of notifications but only from email and facebook. any idea how? thanks in advance!

    Since the 'glass' is able to be cut with scissors, I would have scored it and snapped it on the score.

    Its painful watching your very poor carpentry skills. Plexiglas is best cut with glass cutters. Thanks for the tech specs and coding requirements.

    Would have liked to have seen the wiring in the back pulling it all together. The 3d printed brackets are excellent.

    Great Job guys! do i have to use monitor or tv ? whats that black case?

    Very cool – but an extremely high learning curve here for people like myself who have no programming or PC experience. I suppose the Raspberry Pi tutorial, the Linux tutorial, and the Python tutorial – the audience is completely on their own to figure those out or they shouldn't be building this. Still a very cool idea and video..
