Friday WTF: Bike Periscope

   Kickstarter: solving problems in new and pointless ways. This product is a little mirror you put on your bike, so you can look down when riding and not hit stuff.

Is this you?

   Seems like you could, you know, just look where you are going. Here's a couple shots of the prototype:

   I'm torn between the silliness of this, and the forward thinking. This product might not be perfect, but maybe it is a step on the way to something that is awesome, who knows. The kickstarter has ended, and while the founder raised $6k, he fell short of the $20k goal, so this will not go into production.
