How can I flip my image horizontally in the camera

I want to see instantly a mirrored image of my picture in the LCD display. I know I can do that in post on the computer, but I want to see it instantly on the display of the camera. Is it possible? I have the Pentax k-x and the pentax ist dl. They allow me to rotate the image in the camera to the left and right, but no option for horizontal flip

One can use small mirror to do this flip. The same mirror may used as a rotating screen.
