Alexa Powered Mini Smart Mirror

by Max Beyer

partially successful

    This product will be a small Alexa-powered smart mirror. It will allow you to view images, news, weather, videos, etc.

    The product will be a small Alexa-powered smart mirror, most likely in the shape of a pyramid. It will have a small screen that allows the viewing of videos and images, as well as looking at the weather, news, etc. It will have an app store like thing, allowing people to install modules of their choice. The design must be interesting, and it will be powered by a Raspberry Pi (a custom board maybe in the end) and a two-way mirror. The price needs to be pretty affordable, but it also must be made out of high-quality materials, and have good sound as it will function as a speaker.

    My part

    I will be the project manager and CEO, I will manage logistics, etc. I am also an experienced software developer and web designer. I'm also a maker and have some experience with Eagle PCB design and 3D software.

    (Expected) Revenue

    I'm not sure the expected revenue. I'm hoping to turn this into a Kickstarter or Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in the end, but it will be a hobby project until then.

    Risks & challenges

    We need to be able to source materials at an affordable price and communicate effectively. If we have trouble doing those, or if people don't meet deadlines we might have problems getting a final product to market.

      As the lead electrical engineer, you will be responsible for PCB design, schematics, and most things involving the hardware for our project. Specifically, you will be tasked with designing a control board, connect everything seamlessly to our Pi (microphone, screen, speakers, etc.) and after that (maybe) a controller to replace the Pi, so we have our own board.

      Requirements

      You need: - Knowledge of a common PCB design tool, preferably Eagle - Experience with creating schematics - Experience with laying out boards - Solid communication skills, and good at collaboration

      Offer

      1) A percentage of the revenue. Each person will receive a fair percentage given the amount of work they have done. 2) A recognized spot on the team (and company if it's formed) for future collaboration. 3) Full credit in any crowdfunding campaign and on the website.

      Function description

      As the product designer, you will be responsible for designing an interesting, modern, and good looking product. You will have to work with the electrical engineer (who will be creating circuit boards) to come up with dimensions to make sure everything fits. You will be working with some sort of 3D program (SolidWorks, Fusion 360, etc.) and we will probably be designing for 3D printing or CNC. The product design really needs to stand out, it has to be seamless and be different from all the others on the market, so be sure you have some ideas ready.

      Requirements

      You need: - Experience designing products (hobby or professionally) - Experience with a common 3D design tool (SolidWorks, Fusion 360, etc.) - Solid communication and collaboration skills
