Mirror framed racquet so I can see behind me   (+7)  [vote for, against]
What was THAT!

Earlier today, I was playing tennis with my eldest daughter (dear readers, she's 10.5 - when I started on the halfbakery, she wasn't born).

As we were playing doubles, there were points of the game where I was standing in front of her on court and unable to see exactly what she was doing. The mirror-framed racquet is made of your usual materials (carbon, metal) with a highly polished plastic frame cover on it so that I can put it up and have a quick nosey behind me without having to physically turn around.

Safety matters :)

You could also use it to tactically dazzle your opponents.

Gr. "there were points"

// I was standing in front of her on court //

"She's behind you !"

How the devil is she playing you and is behind you? Oh, with. As you were.

Hmm. Gives me an idea.

Likewise, mirrored hurdles in the 110m hurdles running race would allow you to see how far behind you your opponents are
