We describe hardware design and software development of a low-cost interactive smart mirror. The project uses a one-way mirror with a LCD screen mounted behind to display information to a user. Interaction is possible by using hand gestures which are recognized by an electrical near field sensor. A camera is used to identify fiducials printed on medication packs. The software runs in a Java environment on a microcomputer. The system is connected to the internet and uses multiple web-connected APIs to access content like E-Mail messages and calendar events.
