Rear viewing jacket
Looking into your mirrors while riding your motorcycle is so old fashion. Come on, we're living in the 21st century for crying-out-loud. Let's get with the program.. high tech.

Paul Coudamy Open link in a new window has designed a jacket, albeit not one for motorcycles, but that's a question of slight adjustments, that has a built-in video camera.

The camera is located behind, at the top of the jacket, and can see anything that's happening behind you.

Rear viewing jacket

Inside the left sleeve of the jacket is a small LCD TV monitor. Want to see what's coming up behind you, just lift your arm, or rotate it slightly, and you can see in real time the traffic situation.

The advantage is of course when you're off your motorcycle, you can continue monitoring your 6 o'clock.

Paul has very thoughtfully placed lots of orange on the jacket, so we can be seen at night on our motorcycle. Which brings me to be big question, what happens at night? Is the camera infrared??

Hmmmm... I think I'll stick to my mirrors, or at least go for a Reevu {link}
