New Side Mirror for Cars shows up to 65 degrees of the back view without distorting the distance or image
A Korean firm SirisK, which specializes in optical lenses, has developed a special mirror to tackle one of the most difficult maneuvers for novice drivers — changing lanes. Supplementary mirrors already look into the blind spots the side and rearview mirrors fail to capture, but they distort the image and the actual distance between the cars. SirisK commercialized a new mirror that shows up to 65 degrees of the back view without distorting the distance or image with an aspheric multi-focal foldable lens that is usually used for eye glasses.
The Korean Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs picked the technology for financial support and plans to recommend public bodies to buy cars equipped with the new side mirrors when buying new cars.
