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.

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? -
