Anyone seen this? It looks like a great idea.
That's pretty cool, I wonder how well it works.
Cool idea, but Lemon Pledge work good for me, cheap and effective
I appreciate creativity and engineering but simple works for me. I just turn my head sideways to each shoulder and the rain blows off. If worst comes to worst I swipe my finger across the shield.
That's a pretty sweet idea! But, I ride a KLR, so I just pull over and lick my windscreen clean.
Having that wiper blade move across my shield would be more distracting than having drops of water on there.
Never say never, I have a few tricks to keep the drops from staying. But I would try this for sure.
How much is it?
seems like a good thing for a long rainy trip on the slab.
The prices vary depending on what you want but starts around $70 and you can unmount it when you are not using it and it comes with a protective case for safekeeping. I think I'm gonna try it out because when it's bucketing down the last thing you need is the distraction of trying to keep your screen clear and these have intermittent and variable speeds as well.
I have a fabric pad on the thumb of my glove to wipe if need be but I worry that it will scratch as it gets prety dirty in the wind all day, a purpose built wiper seem like a good Idea, New materials, new electronics make it more possible then years ago... I’m in for <$100.
Not to open a new can of worms but I feel the same about Electronic reverse these days.
I'm sure BMW will buy the patent, price it about $3,500, and you'll have to program it with your phone to work
That's an interesting product, it sure beats wiping the face shield with my fingers.
During rainy season my helmet preference is an open face helmet, with the face shield removed and I wear protective glasses instead.
Reason is with open face helmet I don't have to worry about wiping the face shield when it's raining. Raindrops hurt my face though, it's paaaiiin... but I'd rather have a bit of pain on my face than not being able to see the road ahead.
I can also do that with full face helmet by flipping the face shield up when it'a raining, but then the interior of the helmet will be wet, drenched and take a long time to dry.
So to me this product is interesting cause unable to see what is ahead when it's raining will not be a problem anymore. I will buy one when it's available.

I hope it works well, sure would be a great asset for rainy days.
I must be missing something where it keeps the INSIDE of the shield from fogging. Also , it seems like it should be on the bottom of the shield so water doesn't run down the inside where the clips are at the top. I also don't think I want horizontal scratches across an expensive shield.
it doesn't prevent fogging, use Pinlock for that.
as much as it rains here on the Oregon coast I would be interested.
The video claims it reduces fogging. Try watching it.
I use Pinlock for that. Wiper is to wipe...so I don't expect it to prevent or even reduce fogging.
I reread my post again, and it doesn't sound right...
What I'm saying is, to me it doesn't really matter if the wiper doesn't prevent fogging cause I can use Pinlock for that or slightly open the face shield. What matters most to me is that it wipes the raindrops from the face shield, so I can see the road ahead in heavy rain.
Crowdfunding exercise. Does not look like a real product.
They are actually shipping units out as i understand, it's a goer!
