I was reading through an article on the Spanish site Motorpasion Moto Open Motorpasion Moto link in a new window about the Italian Rizoma Open Rizoma in a new window motorcycle mirror "Code Open Code link in a new window". Rizoma's Code is a mirror that is made to closely resemble a smartphone. Simple, elegant and novel:

For naked and custom motorcycle, this mirror could look nice on their bike, albeit at a price... €119 for one (Rizoma Code Open Rizoma Code link in a new window). But that got me thinking...

... why not put a smartphone where your left mirror would be, and using the onboard camera to see what's behind you. The advantage of that is that you could zoom in to the level you want.

An additional advantage, depending on software developers, is that you could, on the same "mirror", have navigation instructions, or even traffic information appear.

You could even use the phone's front facing camera to record your ride. And for the bikers who want to see more behind them and get more information, you could put an iPad...Flushing Smiley

Now how's that for an idea? Of course the phone must be waterproof...
