Android Motion Sensing Smart Mirror

We decided that we needed a mirror in our kitchen, and I was also conscious that my family uses their smartphones to check weather, calendar appointments etc before getting the children ready and heading out for the day. I had found numerous great examples of smart mirror tutorials and articles on the web, and I decided to see if I could improve on them using my existing skills as a web developer and some spare kit I had in a drawer (and original Nexus 7). I also wanted the “smart” bit of the mirror to come on only when looked at, so no buttons to touch, voice control (difficult in a sometimes noisy house) and definitely not on all the time. Given that I was using an Android tablet I was able to find all the apps I needed, some paid for, some free, all links below.”
