A Periscope for Cyclists: Pedi-Scope

by Lambert Varias

Mike Lane’s Pedi-Scope is a simple analog device that will free cyclists of squealing from their neck pain. Squeaking from the freaking. Oinking from the boinking. The Pedi-Scope straps to the front of your bicycle and shows the view up front on a horizontal glass display, letting you see what’s ahead while you’re looking down.

Mike says he’s an avid cyclist himself but was getting sick of the neck and shoulder pains arising from the normal riding position. Sure, he could put his head down, but then his entire body would be in danger. When he saw a pair of prism glasses online, the idea hit him. His prototype is actually made from the prisms inside a couple of prism glasses, hence the fragmented display. The final version of the Pedi-Scope will have one long prism.

I think it’s a good solution to the problem, though if you ask me it needs to be bigger or at least magnify the reflection. But if you’re sold, you can pledge at least $39 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Pedi-Scope as a reward.
