That article is over a year old, I'm guessing it's gone no further?

Not That I could find. I'm guessing the cycling community would've put up a bit of resistance. They have just passed laws in NSW that require any cyclist must carry ID after a bit to have bicycles "registered" like normal vehicles failed. Still waiting for the first little kid to get pulled up and fined for not having ID :D

I personally think the money could be better invested in making a better more longer lasting rain repellent for the visor. I user-generated Nikwax stuff which Is great I'd just like it to last for the whole day while riding and not a couple of hours at best. Screw the wiper, HUDs and whatever else they want bikers to use solve this one thing (longer lasting water repellent) and I think commuters would be pretty happy in my honest opinion

Fwiw I really like the idea of having a visor wiper.

As long as she's discreet, & bubbly.:

Now we're talking my language.

Unfortunately, they cost more than £60 a go, I believe. :(

I still don't want it, but that one is half the price and looks like a much better developed and more substantial bit of kit.

Mind you, they don't have a CGI mock up on their site of how it *might* work. Those cost, you know?

Also, how many Facebook visitors have they had? We NEED to know these things.

*cough*

:D
