They’ve had mirrors like this in Australia for years.
Drexel Mathematics professor Andrew Hicks has been setting the nerd-blog community reeling with his series of unusual mirrors. Hicks has designed a half-dozen new types of reflective surfaces that may or may not have any true application. He created a mirror that doesn’t reverse its image, a rear-view mirror that is SOOO much better than the ones on your Stanza, and a mirror that is designed to help robots climb stairs. (John Connor is probably turning over in his womb.) While this series of tiny funhouse mirrors may seem to you as a mere pause along your quest for the end of the interweb, it’s safe to say that this is the coolest/most exciting/sexy thing that has ever happened to the Physics & Math section of NewScientist.com. The sad truth is that hours upon hours of mathy toil has been reduced to a few half-hearted clicks of a mouse. Enjoy!
