CyFy WristView Mirror is worn on your wrist while cycling. Just hold up your arm to see what's behind you to make a left turn safely. Read more
This project was successfully funded on March 8, 2012.
About this project
The CyFy WristView Mirror is a convex mirror mounted on a highly reflective snap band with a goal of improving cycling safety. Before you initiate a left hand turn or merge, simply hold up your arm, glance at the WristView Mirror, and see if there are cars trailing you to the left.
CyFy WristView Mirrors are safer than bicycle helmet mounted mirrors by providing a wider field of view with no vibration. Our WristView Mirrors are safer than handle bar mounted mirrors because you never have to adjust the mirror while road biking and you will never impulsively turn the wheel in the opposite direction to see what is behind you.
We have manually built and tested 50 prototypes. We are in the process of evaluating snap band and mirror vendors and their samples. We have a packaging design idea and mocked up sample. We have an initial concept for the CyFy logo. We already have a company that will assemble and package the final product in the Denver area.
How we will use the funding for CyFy:
- Graphic design - finalize CyFy logo (incorporating Psi and Phi Greek letters), develop band graphics, and package design
- Purchase inventory of mirrors, customized snap bands, and packaging
- Assembly of samples for kickstarter backers and initial inventory of retail packages
