Nissan Rear-view Mirror Can Switch to Rear Camera View: Who’s the Nearest of Them All?

Nissan just made the rear-view mirror twice as useful. Its Smart mirror neatly hides an LCD monitor, which can display live video from a camera mounted at the rear of a vehicle at the flick of a switch.

The 4:1 monitor and 1.3mp camera should come in handy not just when your cargo or passengers are blocking your view, but also when your rear window gets dusty, wet or fogged up.

I think it’s a great idea, but as other folks have pointed out, it might be better if the switch is installed somewhere that’s closer to the driver. Nissan will offer the Smart rear-view mirror starting this Spring in Japan and in the rest of the world starting next year.
