The mirror as an appliance has persisted unchanged in functionality for epochs. This paper aims to utilize and modernize the space occupied by a conventional mirror by substituting with a fully functional Google Home compatible smart mirror. Our smart interacting mirror offers the functionality of a smart speaker, smart display, and a mirror interface. Our paper aims to use the squandered space at home to make looking at a mirror a bit more fun and useful. The “Smart Interacting Mirror” device consists of a wooden frame incorporating a one-way mirror, a display of suitable size, a Raspberry Pi 3B+, mic, and a speaker setup to offer a “Clean Mirror-suitable” interface and Google Assistant integration. The mirror interface is enabled by MagicMirror, a minimalistic open-source interface with customizable modules. Each module contains custom functions. The default modules offer time display, weather display, calendar display, and news headlines, all while still maintaining functionality as a mirror. This device is a lifestyle addition to smart homes. Interaction with mobile devices can be minimized, and actions can be more ergonomic.
