Cowon Auto Capsule
I'm sure that your dad is a safe driver, but accidents happen and it's sometimes good to have an extra set of eyes on the road to help prove innocence. Dashboard cameras like the Cowon Auto Capsule continuously capture video out of your car's dashboard and, when an accelerometer-based shock sensor is triggered, capture a clip of the incident.
The good: The Cowon Auto Capsule AC1 is simple to operate. It automatically captures a 30-second HD video clip when it detects a bump, including up to 15 seconds of video preceding the trigger.
The bad: The manual alludes to secondary features that are never explained. No Mac-friendly video playback software is included in the box.
The bottom line: The Cowon Auto Capsule AC1 HD dashboard camera is so simple that it requires almost no interaction from the driver, but its MSRP is a bit high for its feature set.
