Bafflingly Pointless Video Device

Gadget freaks become gadget freaks because they love living life on the cutting edge, but sometimes the cutting edge is a strange place to be. Take the Hanwha Umazone K3 In-Car Video Recorder, for example.

As a “BlackBox System”, the implication is clearly that with this device mounted on your windshield you will have a record of anything that happens during a journey, be it the events of an accident or some other auto-related crime.

But is this really going to be useful at all, other than as a means of getting auto-nerds fired up about driving their kids to and from school? Surely in the event of an accident, the first thing to be vaporized is going to be this little plastic box on your dash?

Either way, it will spice up those games of I Spy on long journeys and um.. record you driving around town.

Currently the device is only available in Japan, a fact I don’t envision causing too much of an upset here in North America.
