Nissan’s Forthcoming Smart Rearview Mirror

0nissansmartmirror-001.jpg

Don’t you hate it when the view through your rearview mirror is obscured by the rear seat headrests, or that hitchhiking drifter that you picked up? Back when I still owned a car, I pulled the rear headrests out of my ’01 Golf just so I could get a clear view. Then there’s this ridiculous design trend we have now for absurdly chunky C-pillars, which completely obscure your view of whatever’s behind your car’s rear quarters.

Nissan is addressing this with their forthcoming Smart Rearview Mirror, which they’re unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show:

It’s so simple, and so elegant, that we can’t imagine a future where the automakers that aren’t already developing their own versions can resist piling on. And I like the way the interface mimics the traditional dimming effect, where you just flick the little angle-changer behind the mirror.

Now that they’ve got this together, the question is—why not have it be persistent?

My point of view: it is not the noise, it the the underlying tones that are relevant.
