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.

Foreplay is something that you don’t even have to think about in the early stages of a relationship. Getting turned on just by holding hands and being together, leading onto kissing, stroking and then the removal of clothes for even more intimate touching - all that spine-tingling good stuff generally comes pretty naturally while you’re still getting to know each other. This guide is aimed at everybody else.
Dear Lifehacker, I always take my thumb drive wherever I go. I'm also a bit absentminded. I want to guarantee my thumb drive gets returned to me if I ever lose it. My idea is to have malware hidden on the drive in a specific folder labelled 'porn101' or 'myprivatefiles'. If the person opens that file, it will automatically encrypt their computer and ask them to email me to get the unlock code. (I will give it to them once they return the thumb drive to me, of course.) Which brings me to my question - is this legal? It's not like I'm demanding money or anything. I just want my property back!
