Sometimes when I drive my VW GTI, I wish I had some of the finer features found on higher end cars.  One of them: an auto dimming rear view mirror.  Well, looks like now I can, thanks to Alpha Mirror.  The device attaches to most rear view mirrors – in just 30 seconds – and comes to us by way of military technology.  That’s right, this tech was apparently developed for fighter pilots.  Just pop in the batteries and clip it to your rear view and you’re good to go.

Comes in a variety of colors and available here for $139.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
