After a crash, rewind the rear-view mirror

It's got a built-in DVR to review the scene of an accident.

Forget those all-in-one car media systems. The automotive convergence device of the future may be the rear-view mirror.

We've already seen versions equipped with built-in Webcams, back-up cameras, GPS tracking, and even heart monitors. And now there's one that comes with a DVR.

The "Camera Recorder Pro" isn't made for drivers who want to catch up on previous episodes of Lost while behind the wheel (we hope). Quite the contrary, it's meant as a safety device to document events at the scene of a fender-bender, according to Gizmodo.

There are plenty of other technologies that provide this service with standalone products, but this is the first we've seen that's actually built into the mirror. We're not sure how effective it is, but it might well be worth it for the accident-prone.
