Windscreen Wiper Mirror

I’m all for the simplest ideas to solve some common problems. Instead of using some toxic glass cleaner to prevent shower steam, why not attach a discarded windshield wiper? It’s not the most elegant solution unless you live in a modern industrial loft. Oh wait! A lot of people live in those and love it too!

    is attaching a windshield wiper really the simplest idea?! it looks very strange to me…

  • Joss says:

    In my bathroom I have a special mirror that never gets “dull”. It is a lot easier and most of all, not ugly.

  • mini says:

  • Designer says:

    That was one of 2006 IF design award winner’s concept!!

    Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen! Stolen!

    Or, a few molecules of hand soap on the fingers to get rid of steam from any mirror.

    This idea’s apparently swiped! Maybe modifying the concep until it becomes a bathroom that allows drivers to shower and shave while operating a motor vehicle. That would make it more original.

    The description says this is designed by “Causas Externas Studio” NOT Yanko.

    Unless I’m confused, Yanko is just reporting about this, not taking credit for this product.

    This might be stolen, it might be a good idea, it might even be innovative. but one thing it is not is Design. There is a huge difference between slapping a a squeegee on a hinge to a bathroom mirror and designing a vanity mirror with an integrated wiping device. I have come up with better in my sleep.

  • pirco says:

    you can’t be seriously thinking that wiping your foggy bathroom mirror is an idea to be stolen!!
    the design here (and that’s arguable) is the idea of bringing a windshield wiper into the mix, NOT the fact that someone came up with a solution for wiping a mirror.
    jeez…

    you mean you have to operate it manually? motorize it and then maybe you got something – on the other hand there are anti fogging mirrors that don’t need a dumb windshield wiper.

      One is detachable the other is not…shut up you naggers.

      Certaintly I would see more money being made with the “copy”.

    Next is what?
    1. Side mirrors besides wash basin! to see who’s standing behind you in queue!
    2. Flush knob with gear shift! to regulate the amount of flow!
    3. Bath tub with seat belt! What else… add steering wheel and accelerator/brake to control shower flow!
    4. Gauge dial attached to the toilet sink to check the amount of gas released by you!
    5. Replace bathroom lamps with head lamps! place it above shower and bath tub so that it’ll focus on you!
    6. Add car deck music system in bathroom to entertain you while bathing!
    More ideas are invited from you all…
