THE CORKY X MIRROR ENSURES YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER TO SEE APPROACHING TRAFFIC FROM BEHIND WITH A SIMPLE BLINK OF THE EYE SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON THE ROAD AHEAD WHILE STAYING IN AN OPTIMAL RIDING POSITION.
Designed to allow you to look behind you without physically glancing over your shoulder as you ride your bicycle, the CORKY X has an aesthetic that looks rather familiar if you’re a tech enthusiast. Modeled roughly on the form factor of the Google Glass, CORKY X gives you a different kind of HUD. Fitted with a small mirror, the eyewear accessory lets you instantly look behind you simply by glancing out of the corner of your eye.
CORKY X comes with a universally retrofittable design that attaches to any piece of eyewear securely, comfortably, and in mere seconds. The product uses a highly reflective acrylic PC mirror that’s comparable to commercial mirrors but at a fraction of the weight. The mirror sits at the very corner of your visual periphery (so it doesn’t block your view of the road ahead) and is mounted within an adjustable housing that allows you to tilt the mirror in any direction, eliminating blind spots so you have the perfect view of what’s behind you.
While the idea behind the CORKY X seems outwardly simple, the product’s design process required a fair deal of consideration and was more complex than you’d think. The product’s weight, form factor, aerodynamics, and functionality play a critical role in ensuring it works flawlessly without failing or causing an accident. To that degree, CORKY X’s design specifically achieves three crucial things – A. An aerodynamic form factor that allows it to cut through the air without bending or deflecting as you ride, B. a lightweight design (weighing 14 grams) that doesn’t cause your glasses to tilt, and C. an error-free, minimal-tolerance assembly that doesn’t vibrate or change angles as you ride on rough terrain.
