True Mirror Doesn’T Show a Reversed Reflection

by Chris B.

Mirrors are great. They let you see yourself much the same way that the rest of the world does. Unfortunately they have one major drawback: Everything is reversed.

You’d think that whoever invented the things would have noticed that everything you see in a mirror is backwards. No, they took the cheap way out and just wrote it off as a “feature” or something. Thus, if you want to fix this problem, you’ve got to hack together a solution of your own. This True Mirror looks like one of the nicer hacks out there.Alright, so maybe I’m being a little harsh on mirrors. They do a good job for when you want to see how you look. The times where I actually care about things being reversed are quite rare. However, if you simply must see things properly, this looks like a rather nice way to do it. The device uses a pair of mirrors cut so they fit together almost seamlessly when set at a 45-degree angle.

While it is a novel idea, you’ll want to have some pretty deep pockets in order to get one. I mean, $245 for a 1-foot square mirror (am guessing on the dimensions, as none were listed)  is a tad excessive.

    Our house actually has one of these in the bathroom (put in by the previous owner). While this mirror has the improvement of not having a massive seam down the middle, it would still be bloody annoying to shave with.
