Nissan Demonstrates Smart Rearview Mirror

While the very purpose of a rearview mirror is to see what's behind you, Nissan is looking ahead. The Japanese automaker demonstrated a prototype of its Smart Rearview Mirror during the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays was there to check it out. The system works similarly to a conventional backup camera, but instead broadcasts unobstructed real-time images to the driver's rearview mirror at the flip of a switch. Catching a glimpse of the newfangled mirror in a mass-produced car is years off, so for now get Mays' reflections by watching the video above.
