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?

It may not be a silver bullet, but design thinking can yield results if companies manage their expectations and commit themselves to implementing good ideas.

Before we announce the death of Design Thinking, we ought to at least agree on what it meant — or rather, what it means, since, although maligned, the practice is alive and well and continues to help churn out innovative solutions to intractable problems for the few organizations that get it right.
