Australian company RearViz has two new wearable products designed to increase safety on the road and catch video for later use. Their first product, the patent pending RearViz (product name same as the company) is a rear view mirror that you wear on your body. An interesting alternative to the helmet mirror, the angle of the mirror is adjustable to fit your body.
The Uni Mount mounting system for GoPro cameras uses a similar body attachment system, and allows full 360 degree adjustability to aim the camera. Available in different sizes and compatible with accessories for other items, see the details after the break…
The RearViz rear view mirror is designed to be worn on the arm, placing it at the widest part of the body, letting you aim the convex mirror so you can see what’s coming up behind you. The the breathable, perforated strap is adjustable to any arm size. Classic and Standard models are available, with the Classic model upgrading to a pouch with a small medical ID tag. There are several colors available, and cost between $21.60 and $43.39.
Just announced, the Uni Mount uses a similar mounting system to the RearViz, but replaces the mirror with a GoPro mount. Primarily intended for the GoPro, it is designed to face either forward or backwards, which can double as a safety feature. Some riders using a rear-facing camera on the road who have experienced harassment, or even being hit by a car, have had success using the footage to press charges, find a hit and run driver, or show law enforcement evidence.
RearViz says that they are also working on other accessories that will fit the Uni Mount, such as a cell phone mount, and those will be available soon. The Uni Mount is coming soon, price TBD.
