BMW night vision

It might take some getting used to checking out your dash and seeing something that looks more akin to those military helicopter infra-red target tracking shots, but BMW is adding a night-vision display in new 7-series models for evening driving.  The QVGA (320 x 240) camera goes along with their new high-beam assist feature (which itself monitors the road for other vehicles and adjusts the high-beams accordingly when no one is around), and scans at up to about 1,000 feet in front of the vehicle, even swiveling horizontally with the headlights during turns. Too bad your alibi about watching TV while driving as you hit your neighbor's mailbox just just got blown.
