smaller screen? haha not sure just yet, i ended up destroying the first mirror, the tape i used to make a straight line absolutely refuses to keep the chemical from seeping under it, so i kept getting bigger... and bigger rough edges, i ended up using another mirror i have, i think it will work out better, the only thing iv really thought of other then the lcd is to utilize the buttons in the mirror for turning on and off my pc and maybe making a plexi window or something and illiuminate it with possibly the intel inside logo or something, just not sure yet.
Its actually an auto dimming mirror, i dont know what voltage exactly its saaaaafe at really but iv tested it at 1.5 and 3 volts and it works just fine, i have regulators for both, but it blacks out the mirror completely and i love the look, this is what iv been able to get so far until i ran out of butane for my soldering iron.
this took forever..
and the solder doesnt want to stick to well to these for some reason, ill probably have to tack them down with some glue afterwards to keep the stress down on the weld.
This is with the mirror without the tint activated.
and with the same lighting, with the tint activated.
