there's a company that is working on a cycloputer that has a rear-view camera. if it's cheap i think i might try it, especially if i can mount the camera surreptitiously under my saddle.
"yes, i can see you out of my butt."
I don't get it. Is this so your life insurance will pay off quickly? Seems to me it's one of those "we need to increase the paranoia level" items.
"be careful this rando stuff is addictive and dan's the 'pusher'."
I have ridden with Evan's Cerevellum prototype and it is nice to briefly glance down and see the camera view in the same location as a standard cyclo-computer. The vibration and positioning issues that some people have with mirrors are not an issue with this product. The accident recording is a nice feature too…even if it is something that none of us really want to think about.
…and even though safety is the primary reason for the Cerevellum, it would also be interesting to see the face of the rider drafting behind you in a race. I am sure the UCI would have some thoughts on that type of use for a product like this.
I would love to see the viewing angle of this thing for riding in NYC traffic.
I have no interest in using a mirror. I know some guys do, that's great, but i don't.
I'd be afraid that the seatpost mounted camera would be obscured by my flabby ass hanging off the back of the saddle. If I'm going to see ass while I ride, I don't want it to be mine.
