Two Way Mirror Film Smart Mirror Build – Is It Possible?
One of the most expensive parts of building a smart mirror can be shelling out for a nice two-way mirror. Therefore, a lot of people have been experimenting building a smart mirror with two-way mirror film on top of regular glass/plastic instead of actual two-way glass.
While I haven’t tried this myself (yet), there are some people who have made smart mirrors using film, and the results aren’t all that bad by the looks of it.
Smart-Mirror maker Johann Reyes has been making some great smart mirrors, and used a two-way mirror film in one of his projects.
You can check out photos from the build here:
And here is a video of his mirror in action. Looks pretty great! So if you want to make a smart mirror on a low budget, you could try the film way, but I doubt it will be as clear as using normal two way mirror glass.
