For my main project in this course, I want to build something I will actually use after this class is over. I struggled over thinking of an idea, so I started looking at cool DIY projects online. I stumbled across a video of a person creating a smart mirror that let him know the weather, news, and gave him personalized messages. I thought this looked like an awesome project, which inspired me to possibly make one of my own. The problem with this project is that it could be quite expensive because you need a computer monitor, raspberry pi, double sided mirror, and wood for the mirror frame. I am hoping to not have to buy a new computer monitor, so I am going to ask around and see if I can find a used one for cheap. I think this project would be useful for me and would teach me how to use and integrate a raspberry pi. I would customize what displays on the screen with things I find interesting such as: sports scores, text messages from my phone, the weather, and a clock. I am really excited for this idea because I need a mirror in my room in my apartment and this would teach me new skills, especially wood working.
