Google engineer who was a lead on the Glass project. Max Braun decided to make this Android-powered mirror when he couldn’t find one available for sale like the ones he’s seen in sci-fi flicks over the years.

The gorgeous result comes from a two-way mirror with a thin display behind it, which shows the weather, current temperature, time, date, and news headlines from the Associated Press.

Braun says it runs off just a few hundred lines of code, and that he’s looking into implementing “traffic, reminders, and essentially anything that has a Google Now card.” It even has voice-based search implemented.

The Android APK is running on an Amazon Fire TV Stick in the background powering this smart mirror, which he’s using after first trying a Chromecast and then Nexus Player. The inside of the cabinet has loose wires and a board that the Fire TV Stick is plugged into, but it obviously looks a lot nicer on the outside. He plans to clean up and simplify the components as he continues tweaking the project.

I would love to install this magical mirror in my bathroom so I be looking at the screen even when I’m showering. There will be no peace on this earth soon.
