A rear-view mirror that does it all

From GPS to entertainment, and safety in between.

Enduring certain ridicule, we have suggested on occasion that the rear-view mirror could become one of the main control centers for vehicles of the near future. Already, there have been versions that have technologies ranging from GPS navigation to built-in camcorders and Webcams . And now there's one that appears to cram in more functions than all of the others combined.

As indicated by its name, the "Multifunction GPS Bluetooth Rearview Mirror System" claims a broad array of features, including a 3.5-inch touch screen, satellite navigation, audio and video players, speakers, SD card slot, five games, and even a stylus, according to Red Ferret. It also has a rechargeable battery, in case you want to pull it off the windshield and use it as a mini-boombox.

Fair warning, though: It's being offered by one of those generic distributors from China, so warranties and any kind of support may be scarce to non-existent. Besides, this version doesn't have a heart monitor --yet.
