Thankfully this DVR-equipped rearview mirror isn't meant to let you watch a few scenes of your favorite shows while crawling in traffic. The Car Camera Recorder Pro turns on automatically when you start your car, and shuts down when you stop the engine. It attaches to any existing rearview mirror, and plugs into a standard car lighter.
The company claims the device reduces blind spots, but the main advantage is the DVR. Get in an accident that's not your fault? The device records the event, storing the video on an SD card, and preventing you from being subjected to higher insurance premiums because someone else doesn't know how to drive.
ah, but what if the accident _is_ your fault? ;D
Be kind of cool to record the stupid drivers on the road and put the videos on youtube! You know who you are...
They should hook those cameras onto Nascar cars, imagine seeing the crash from the hood,back, and inside of the car. That would be a show.
