German brand BMW has a new invention for side mirrors, now instead of glass mirrors will contain a camera that will record visibility to the rear of the vehicle.

Implemented on a BMW i8, a car that already looks like it came from the future, the system took imagery from four cameras around the car, showing it as a single video image on a display where the rearview mirror would be.
