Bump mirrors   (+10, -1)  [vote for, against]
For when your baby bump is obscuring the view

When she was pregnant, a friend found that she developed a blind spot... encompassing her feet and any nearby tripping hazards. When you've got little children, there are tripping hazards a-plenty.

How about a couple of mirrors, mounted on one's hips, to allow a clear view of the sub-bump unknown?

Also suitable for the morbidly obese.

I don't know about you, but I don't typically look -down- while walking. I look forward along my path, keeping a subconscious mental note of obstacles which need avoiding/stepping over/stepping around.

But [+] for the mental image of someone walking around with the 'aid' of a pair of hip-mounted mirrors.

Pregnant persons are often somewhat sensitive to their bloated profile. So rather than further blowing it out with wing mirrors, how about using cameras? With a bumptop screen, you could effectively make the bump itself see-through.
