Take a Look at Cadillac’s Award-Winning Rear Camera Mirror

Cadillac has always been a leader in innovation and the modern automotive scene, with its abundance of new technologies and competitive inventions, hasn’t put a stop to this.

Cadillac has been the recipient of a wide variety of awards for their innovative new products, the most recent of which being the 2015 Popular Science “Best of What’s New” award for Cadillac’s new Rear Camera Mirror.

The new Rear Camera Mirror is one of those inventions that seem so simple and so obvious that you’re half-amazed cars haven’t been designed like this since the dawn of the automobile (and the inception of the in-car camera system).

The Rear Camera Mirror is a rear-view camera that live-streams directly onto the rear-view mirror. It increases the driver’s field of vision by an estimated 300% through its ingenious lensing system and through the removal of in-car obstructions like headrests and passengers. The Rear Camera Mirror will be available on the new Cadillac CT6 sedan and Cadillac XT5 crossover.

Congratulations to Cadillac for their big win! This is the top prize from the lauded tech magazine, Popular Science, and is given out to only 100 inventions and innovations across the globe.

Great (and Cheap) Last Minute Gifts for Car Lovers

Christmas is just two weeks away, and if you’re anything like us, there’s a good chance you haven’t gotten through all your gift-shopping yet (and won’t until approximately December 24th). However, have no fear! Here’s our quick hit-list of ace-in-the-hole last minute gifts for car lovers (or just the friend you know spends hours each day in their vehicle).

Consider getting them an in-car emergency first aid kit. Not only are these relatively cheap, but your friend or loved one will know that you deeply care for their survival.

Or, if “I deeply care for your survival” isn’t the message you’re ready to send someone yet (especially for a significant other if you’re not planning a proposal soon; nothing says “marry me” like a AAA 85-piece First Aid Kit), then consider a super-comfy gel seat cover. The message is a little less life-changing, more “I deeply care for your general comfort.”

Finally, if neither of those sounds just right, why not just get them a cool highway map of their home state? These are modern and stylish and they’ll appreciate how worldly and well-travelled it makes them appear. Perk: it’s much cheaper than most art prints, but just as sophisticated (depending on the art print).

Don’t fret about those last minute gifts for car lovers in your life, there are plenty of options out there!
