It looks more or less like a normal rearview mirror but has an internal camera pointing forward to record whatís happening in front of your vehicle.
Unlike other in-car recorders that you attach to the windshield, the advantage of this rearview mirror is that it doesnít obstruct your view. It activates automatically when you turn on the engine, and automatically starts overwriting the old footage in a continuous loop so that you donít have to worry about replacing the storage media when itís full and missing out on something.
The right side of the mirror consists of a LCD display that can show whatís being recorded currently or play back whatís already been recorded. To make it even more nifty (and practical), the device includes a GPS and accelerometer, so that along with your video footage, data on your location and motion also gets recorded.
A 2 GB SD card should record about 130 minutes of video, and power is supplied from your carís cigarette lighter.
According to the Umazon product page, video by this camera is recorded at 25 frames per second and is 640 by 480 resolution.
This recorder/mirror is available only through Hamwhaís online store, Umazone (the model number is UMA-RMDR02), and costs 14,900 yen.

Interesting idea. Not exactly new tech though. I had one with an LCD screen in the exact same spot that I hooked up a small camera to help me when backing up into spots... that was back in 2002. Only diff is that I didn't record anything.
I'm only an asshole to people who deserve it.
Infracted for being a teapot and proud of it.
