Pump Mirrors II

Inflatable wing morrors
  [vote for,

They're inflatable wing mirrors.

Silvered bubbles (with a small inflation-pump inside the vehicle) replacement wing mirrors for cars/trucks.

At least 2 advantages over conventional glass wing mirrors:

1) Unbreakable (unless someone pop's 'em)

2) Adjustable view angle. The more pressure=>Move view angle.

       Caution: objects in mirror may appear to pop.

       I'd buy them. kinda pumped pump mirrors?

       What keeps the mirrors from being susceptible to vibration from wind resistance and vehicle movement? There's little more annoying than a side mirror with the jitters, and because these are inflatable there would seem to be few secure and sturdy attachment points. Or are they merely meant to fit inside the standard cowling that standard mirrors now occupy?

       Gonflable mirrors.

       [jurist] Yes, but perhaps the cowling could now be a little more flexible - enough to stay in shape at 100mph, but pliable when bashed.   

       [skinflaps]Gonflavu. I like it!

       This is actually brilliant...you should patent the thing
