Spook Tastic

A full blog post on this project is long overdue, but in the mean time here is a high level overview.

For Halloween 2019 I built a smart mirror powered by a Raspberry Pi and an old Dell LCD. The setup consisted of a two way mirror on top the LCD with a wooden “picture frame” built around it to conceal the power supply, speaker and Raspberry Pi.

The Pi was connected to the screen and a PIR and triggered a random full screen video using a Python script as well as flickering the lights!

I’ll maybe add a video and some photos to this post of it in action and the build process!
