Smart Mirror - Input Questions
#1
Alright, so I'm interested in creating a smart mirror like project (this has been done on the rpi before).
However, I'm not sure how to handle input/controls. Here's a couple suggestions I had.

1. Touchscreen monitor/module 
Seemed like a good choice at first, but if put behind a 2 way mirror, I doubt it will work

2. Voice commands
Not sure how easy this would be to implement...

3. Gesture control
Probably even harder than voice commands.

4. Wireless mouse/keyboard 
Should work fine, but seems like a janky solution that would compromise the whole idea behind a smart mirror

5. Could possibly use a touchpad/keyboard solution such as

6. Maybe I could use my android phone as a remote?

Basically at this point I'm looking for any ideas on how to handle user input.
I was thinking of using android or remix since they already have a bunch of apps that can be downloaded.
