So my idea was to use mirror film on a touch screen monitor to make a touch screen version of the magic mirror.
I basically used my old droid razr, which has a capacitive touchscreen, to perform the testing. I applied 2 way mirror film to the screen, and examined the results.
The mirror film acted as a conductive and triggered the touch screen on all sides. Essentially it was the same as placing your whole hand on the screen and trying to tap over top of it.
As seen in this image, I was somehow able to actually slide the lock to one side but it simply stuck there as if I never took my finger off.
(Ignore the bubbles on the film, I didn’t spend a whole lot of time making it perfect since this was just my testing phase)
In this gif, I peeled off the film and applied it sideways, which made it to where I couldn’t tap anything. This is as if I laid my hand over one half of the display, and tried to tap something.
In the last gif, I actually found out you can practically use the film as a stylus.
This won’t work for what I want haha.
I’m not sure where to go with this idea from here, maybe someone has a suggestion? Mirror Film does not seem to be the way to go.
Maybe one of the other touch technologies would not have these problems, but I am not quite sure.
