Replace your rear view mirror with this Android version that includes a 5-inch LCD display


Well here’s an interesting item for the gadget freak. This rear view mirror is running Android and has a 5-inch display along with a camera for video recording. It looks pretty slick, but there are a couple of issues. First, it only connects via Wi-Fi, so that would mean that it would have to tether to your phone while on the go. Next, and probably not a big deal, is that it’s running Android 4.0 along with a custom UI called CubiDroid. I say not a big deal, and if the Play Store is included, it won’t be. The problem is that It’s not clear if it’s included. They do mention an app store with over 700,000 apps, so I can only assume it is, but you know how that goes. It’s also mentioned that it comes with navigation software, but it doesn’t mention Google Maps.

The 5-inch capacitive touchscreen display has a resolution of 800 x 480, and it has a 1,2 GHz single-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot for up to an additional 64GB of storage, FM transmitter, a camera that records video at 720p, and a 650mAh battery.The battery probably won’t last too long, but they do include a car charger. Last but not, least there is an optional Bluetooth headset ($15). The rear view mirror is priced at $226 at Pentagadget or $250 on eBay. More pics after the break.

    This is Kool but likely to cause more accidents than to prevent them!, it’s hard enough for people to focus on their driving then to have more reasons for distractions.
