A small mirror, a carpenter's folding rule, and duck tape are all I needed to give myself a mirror on a stick. The makeshift tool assembles in about two minutes, the length and mirror angle are adjustable, and the component parts can go back to their original purposes afterward.

I'm thinking it might be of use for a number of other purposes as well.
