Smart mirrors are surprisingly easy to build with a spare screen and two-way mirror, but DIYer Tobias Weis steps things up a bit by adding in gesture controls. The project here isn't exactly cheap, nor is it easy, but it is pretty neat. Weis uses an old computer he had, a 28" monitor and a a custom case for everything. The gesture control technology comes from a Leap motion controller. As far as the information that gets displayed, it's all just a simple web page that acts as a HUD running inside Chromium. You'll find everything you need to build one for yourself, alongside a couple of videos over on Weis' site.

Dear Lovehacker, Let me preface this by saying I am not an attractive man. And I mean that in all senses. I'm fat, ugly, self-loathing, milquetoast, and have absolutely no confidence. I'm in my mid 30s and have long ago (mostly) made peace with the fact that I will never have a fulfilling love or sex life. So anyway I met "L" a few years ago and we became close friends. Smart, funny, sweet, kind and beautiful. She also has a fiancé, "J", who's a pretty great guy and I regularly hang out with both of them. (You can see where this is going, right?)
