Why use hand mirrors?

I was looking for mirrors for my '05 Bonnie when I see a mirror that seems to strap onto the back of your hand.


Not the look I'm going for, but it made me curious.

Does anybody know why this would be used? Does it let you ride legally without a mirror on the bike in some states?

I don't see how they would work. My hand position would have the mirrors facing up in the air and not at whats behind me. And not sure about other states but Illinois you have to have 1 mirror.

Here a pic of one in use..... Seems suited for off road vehicles that don't normally use mirrors.
