    Seriously, I have trouble enough keeping an eye on what’s up ahead without worrying about what’s going on behind me overly much. I tried a mirror and that worked pretty well for a couple of hours before it broke. Mirrors don’t need batteries…

  3. Interesting concept that Cerevellum. But if I were going to use it for “accident recording” I’d point the camera forward.* Waay more crashes involve vehicles coming from the front and side.
