  • Desk-PC 2.0 Update: Full temperature control and a lot of dashboard configuration
    Well, I had the luck that I only had to work two days during Easter. So there was a lot of time to play around with the software suite of aquacomputer. And I have to say: “This piece of software is a beast”. A ton of options to control the cooling and lighting of your PC. But what was achieved so far?

I have been thinking about a smart screen or even a smart mirror for a while now. Finally I got the time to dig into this topic. After some internet research I quickly learned that the raspberry-pi based “MagicMirror2” software is the to-go approach.

It is big, chunky and it is always somewhere laying around and blocking space. So thanks to my advancing 3D-design skills I quickly drew a hook which I then 3d printed and mounted to the wall… Here’s the outcome: The next step will be a mount for the battery charger.. promised ☺️
