My "magic" mirrors are purely technological and are only able to transmit light. More precisely, they can display the visible and infrared spectrums, and communicate via radio waves. They're basically glossy phone screens without any bezel.
Now, there are obvious uses to these, but there's one unorthodox trick, seen briefly during a fight scene. The heroes are in trouble, as their opponents are overpowered Mary Sues, so they use the "ultimate technique" of the mirror. They hold out their devices towards the enemy and simultaneously show an exploding flashbang, the video feed of which ends up blinding the assailants for five seconds.
To summarize, when in this mode, the mirrors can briefly produce (white) light, strong enough to flash-blind people for five seconds. This doesn't have any detrimental effect on the display, but is rather taxing for the battery and can't be done in rapid succession.
The concept is cool, but I'm struggling to find a display technology (like OLED or LCD), even if only experimental, that would be able to actually do what was defined in the criteria. Do you have any ideas on what display type would fit the bill?
To be clear, magic magic doesn't exist here, it's just another name for technology and science, and they're called mirrors not because they were designed to be those, but because they're very glossy and don't have any anti-glare coating.
