Imagine we had a tool on our site that would let you try on different type of mirrors and see right away how they would look on your bike. Wouldn't that be awesome?
For example, we would start with a photo similar to this:
Then you can select different mirrors and see right away how they look. I've been thinking about a tool like this for probably 8 or 9 years now but never found a way to actually do it.
With our new software tools and your help we could finally make it happen.
If you take a photo similar to the one above of your own bike and upload it to the site I can "cut out" the mirrors and add them to a software tool.
If you like the idea of having such a tool on the site please give it a "thumbs up".
And if you like to help build the tool please take a picture of your bike similar to one above. Please take it from the the position where your eyes would be. To size the mirrors correctly you would just have to measure the distance between the outermost points of both mirrors.
While you are at it you might as well take a picture of the front of your bike, maybe we include that in the tool as well since some mirrors look really cool from the front. Just upload it to the site and tag it with "mirrortool".
My man Clive created a simple prototype to give you an idea how it would look like. Just click on any of the 3 mirrors on the prototype to see how they look. What do you think?
Edit 3/18/13: We now have it working on our site and you already select from 2 different bike models and 4 different mirrors. Please check it out and and leave your feedback. Now we need pictures for each bike model. Who can help?
I added a bunch more mirrors, we now have almost 50 mirrors available! I'm still looking for more photos of bikes.
Thanks a bunch in advance
