Well I know it would be rather difficult for the everyday Joe but this seems like a good principle that I would think wouldn't be too hard for a manufacturer to copy. Doesn't have to be actual mirrors either. Just some super reflective plastic coating.

Then, the maker could market an actual "Eco-bright" headlight (something that these new Sylvanias are not) due to a low power draw and long life expectancy. They could be sold at a premium...Instead of using lots of small ones they could use just a couple of the super powerful singles.

Trying to make the most of what God has given me.
