    i seriously want to see how it works. i can see the website pics of the review and it's pretty dope...not bad at all.
    If jack helped you off a horse would you help jack off a horse??

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    Judging from the reevu site, it looks like it works like a periscope... It'd be cool to see any sort of actually working demo picture/video, but I can't find anything on the site. So curious...

    Closest thing I could find

    unlike a car's rearview mirror, there's probably no darken/tint option or setting.
    imagine being blinded by sun or headlights from behind you in all 3 mirrors
    nobody gets out alive

    Quoted from there Faq:

    Q: What about the glare from vehicles coming from behind?
    A: The helmet has a series of reflective surfaces that limit the intensity of light hitting the front reflective surface. This limits the intensity of reflected light significantly. Even a slight turn of the head can ensure the reflective light path is stopped. Find out more on the safety & design page.

    now have they got the number of reflections in the tunnel set so its like a car rear view mirror (reversed image) or is it set regular image?

    its a very unique way of getting the reflection to the front. i wonder how much bulk it adds to the helmet though. they do say the tunnel doubles as cooling. since its open to the elements, what about fogging up?
