Car cameras are certainly becoming popular nowadays, in part because people want the added reassurance of knowing they can prove they didn’t reverse into your Porsche at the traffic lights. Of course we’re not all as litigation happy as the Russians, but even so they’re pretty useful tools.
This Smiley Face Car DVR strikes us as a happy balance between being clearly defensive – don’t try anything bub, we’ve got a *camera* pointing here – and friendly. It features microSD card support up to 16GB, outputs 1280×960 resolution and what’s more can be converted from a car dvr to a jacket lapel version, just in case you find yourselves in tricky situations as a pedestrian too.
Oh yeah, and did we mention you can also use it as a PC webcam? Now that’s going to make for some cheery Skype calls, isn’t it? Priced at $20.99.
