You're playing with a device built in order to let user stand right in front : a mirror. Maybe a solution with facial recognition could be considered ?And what about a small NFC reader ? You could be the only one with a NFC key ring to unlock you session : https://lifehacker.com/use-nfc-tags-to-unlock-your...Whatever you choose : I want to see a demonstration when you'll finish it ^^
Hi ! What exactly is your device model ? Could you find if there is a special place where a magnet could turn off the display ? I know some of iDevice and smartphones have this feature build-in. Like that :Depending where the switch is on your device, you can also find a little piece of wood to reach it through the frame. That's the solution I used : I drilled a tiny hole through my frame and the glass to press directly on the monitor switch. (You can see it on pictures of the step 7, about 5cm below the right lamp and 1cm to the right of the glass)If any of thouse solutions fit to your needs, I would suggest you to look on the Unified Remote app that could turn your display on and off with a smartphone as remote.
Hi !To display UI modules, I'm using rainmeter (https://www.rainmeter.net/). To me, it's the best software to display graphical data. Highly customisable.To control winows, I'm using an application on my smartphone : Unified Remote (https://www.unifiedremote.com/download). It provides a lot of remotes to control a deskotp in many ways.Today, I'm using cortana to bind some voice commands. I don't need more. But if you do, I recommand you to check VoiceAttack (https://voiceattack.com/).I have no clue of what to use regarding AI nor facial recognition, but if you find something, I will be curious to see what you get !Feel free to send me messages if you want to discuss further about your project ;)
I can't wait to see what you will build ;) !
Power an Android Phone With...
Unified Remote RSS Reader
Thank you for your comment ! Yes, you're absolutely right, Windows is a really ressource heavy OS ! It's just that Windows is the OS I know the most. I known exactly how to configure it for my needs. I couldn't do the same on a Linux computer. I thought about the Android solution but it came to me that in this case, I had to let a device with a battery plugged 24/7. I was scared of that but I'm working on a solution to power an Android device without the battery inside. I'll explain that soon ! :)
