Previously the smart mirror was resting on a wire tablet stand, but I’ve found a much better solution. I bought this iphone stand for $13 and it looks exceptionally better. The goal was always to match the Apple desktop mac aesthetic, and I think its getting there. Originally I 3D modeled/printed something very similar, but it lacked the balance to actually stand up. The aluminum is strong enough to hold everything up (the parts are very light anyways), but also perfectly matches what an Apple mirror would look like.
Right now I’m working on creating an OSX style icon set, loading screen, and interface. I also just bought an Intel Compute Stick, because an rpi zero gets annoying to use very quickly. Discussion: r/raspberry_pi (soon)
The bigger board is the LCD controller, the smaller is an rpi zero. Two power cords, and hdmi mini to hdmi then hdmi to hdmi adapters. The white ribbon connects the buttons for the display. I glued/taped some L brackets together to hold up the board. Compared to the previous setup, I also flipped the display upside down so hdmi port now points upwards instead of down, so it fits on top of the stand.
If anyone has a good guide for learning to take better pictures/videos please send it my way.
