I'll continue to turn my head for free.

I think this is the second or third time I've seen these battery operated rear view mirrors on your handlebar. The product I'm waiting for is the Reevu helmet for a bicyclist. I did buy it years ago and the mirror didn't work well. I still feel if the mirror in the helmet was large enough and a battery operated light inside, it would have been perfect. Too bad it's made only for motorcycle helmets.

For $200, I'd rather mount an old iPod touch off Craigslist back there, tethered via Personal Hotspot to my bar-mounted iPhone's data and have a FaceTime window open the whole time... at least I'd feel like I'd accomplished something useful.

headlight glare = totally f**king useless.
sun strike = totally f**king useless.
batteries die = totally f**king useless.

i'm seeing a pattern....

Combining the signals with a front mounted, and helmet mounted cameras for a synced split screen image would be a bike lawyers delight. Especially is the resolution was good enough to get licence plates.

for $200 you can get a used gopro, or two or three.

why stop at two cameras? - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uAQ18gCz8w
