It’s also modular, so you can easy move it around or hang it on the wall if you like. We’ve created a basic application that you can run on the smart mirror, but it’s totally customizable if you want to write some of your own code.

We use a Raspberry Pi 3 in this video, but you can also use an A, B+ or any other Pi.It turns out that building your own smart mirror isn’t just science fiction — it’s actually really easy to put one together.
