Star Wars movie buffs will recognize this jacket without need for any introduction or background info.

Rear-View Mirror With GPS, Bluetooth, Multimedia Playback and Touchscreen Games (aka the We’re Going to Die Mirror)
A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling.

I’ve been fortunate enough with my current desktop PC never to have seen the Blue Screen of Death, but it was a common occurrence in Windows Vista, Windows XP and many versions before it.
