Using Android for a Magic Mirror Project

Using android for a smart mirror is a popular method. Many people are familiar with the OS already and a lot of people have a spare tablet lying around to use for the project. You can even buy a cheap 7″-10″ tablet for well under $100 online to use.

If you want to use Android but also want to use a bigger display for the project, you can use a Android HDMI TV stick, which plugs directly into a HDMI port, and is powered by a 5V USB micro USB plug.
