A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling. It seems as if not enough morons have died on the road, because the distraction-packed rear-view mirror is back, packed with more distraction than ever before.
Looking at its features, it seems as though the designers tried to make a compromise, but then they realized that having anything on a rear-view mirror aside from a mirror is already dangerous in itself, so why hold back? So yes, there is a dedicated mirror, and there’s a GPS navigation system, but there’s more! Bluetooth for hands-free calling! Audio and video playback! Touchscreen games! Users will surely be entertained in the final minutes of their lives.
I wouldn’t give this as a gift even to my worst enemy. We already have enough mobile gadgets that distract us while we’re driving; there’s no need to mount one more right in our vehicles.
