The 2008 Lexus LX570 can see around corners

Lexus has already shown us its Driver Monitoring System which tracks the driver. Now, it's showing off a "front wide-view and side video monitoring system" fitted into the new 2008 LX570 to peer inside your blind spots. The system provides a 180-degree, side-to-side view from the front of the vehicle as if you're standing on the front bumper. This allows you to edge up to a tree, wall, or parked vehicle obstructing your sight in order to get a clear view before pulling out into traffic. The side mounted cam also allows you to see below your passenger, side-view mirror in order to avoid that chucked bottle of bud outside your local dive. Video demonstration, after the break.
