Leaving Gingerbread in the Rear-View Mirror — You’re Doing it Wrong

CES brings us fantastic new gadgets each year, but there’s no secret that plenty of strange and even utter crap gadgets grace the showroom floors. This…well I’m not really sure where this falls. Introducing Rhydeen’s Android Rear-View Mirror. On the one hand, the Android fan boy in me thinks “Oh yeah, that is freaking legit. Android can run on anything”.  However, there’s also that whole notion of the terrible accidents this could play a role in. The world simply isn’t ready for Angry Birds on the freeway. OK, to Rhydeen’s credit, what they previewed at CES was not what they intend to bring to market. By release I’m sure they will have thoroughly tweaked the UI. That being said, the company expects to have a finalized mirror by 2013 but honestly, even if they prevent it from performing dangerous feats, who wants fingerprints on their rear-view mirror?

More photos after the break.

    For me, the ideal place for putting Android (OS) in car is on the dashboard, as a replacement of tachometer, speedometer, etc.

    All decent navigation system out there provide them, and tachometer behind the steering wheel is the easier to see and operate on any car, so Why can’t we Android-ing it?
