Options for a rear facing camera on a powerchair

Postby Spectrapilot » 14 Jan 2020, 21:46

Hi again everyone, has anyone come up with a neat and tidy rear view camera that I could view on my mobile (such as Alfred (a home security app that turns an old mobile/tablet into a cctv system))
I have very limited movement and the sight is fading in the right eye so I struggle reversing.
I'd prefer not to go along the 'wired' option as I'm both unable to fit nor want to avoid any warranty on the current Oil Tanker Tanker powerchair I'm currently allocated, a Specta XTR2 with tilt in space.c
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

the obvious answer would seem to be to use the phones own second camera - the one that points at you rather than away from you - especially if you have it held in a sensible viewing place somehow

Don't get too carried away with new gadget. LCD mons are hard to see in sunlight.

I like my multi-axle £1.5 driving mirror very much. cheers drunk2

Anyone else remember these SeeBackroScopes, widely advertised in my childhood years on the backs of comics?

:D That reminds me of the Ken Dodd gag about reading comics as a 8 year old and wanting one of these in case he got attacked by an assassin creeping up behind LOL
