This Magic Mirror is based from Michael Teeuw's project (https://magicmirror.builders/)
Its running a Raspberry Pi 3 with many different modules. The modules can be found from the link above. Currently I'm running the calendar (personal & work), weather forecast, system stats, BBC RSS feed, Trello, Live Soccer scores. It can also be controlled remotely from my cell phone. Also to save energy, it has a infra-red sensor to wake up the screen when someone is in front of it and will shut off after 30sec of no movement.
The wood is Ash and gives a nice texture to the mirror. The monitor is a Samsung 24".
