Topic says it all, would the pi zero work for this? Seems to me that actually using a raspberry pi just for this projects seems a bit much for what this board is capable of. Just curious if all of this could be ran from a pi zero board to save space and money? I plan on making one out of a spare display I pulled from an old laptop.

    Hey Justin,

    A Pi Zero does work for creating a magic mirror, I actually used a pi zero for mine originally but switched it out for a pi 3 later on. But, a pi zero doesn't work "out of the box" with the MagicMirror2 platform. You will have to install it manually.

    Here is a tutorial I wrote on how to install on a Pi zero:

    If you try it out and run into any problems don't hesitate to comment and I'll try my best to help you out!
