The class has broken into teams to complete a Smart Mirror project by the end of the semester. We have teams working on the 1) Red Oak Frame which includes precision bezel cuts, 2) Hardware Mounting, 3) Graphic Design and 4) User Interface. We are up against the clock to finish this project on time. The teams are learning to share design data with each other.
One of the resources we started to use today is the file repository GitHub. Projects like the smart mirror are great in that we can leverage the open-source work of people who came before us. We can then improve on their designs. This is the type of project gets more interesting as people from around the world keep interating and publishing. We learn from each other. This class will contribute to the cumulative knowledge about this project.
