Hey, FLIR - now THAT'S something to think about. Actually, if you live in town and have a simple driveway and no kids, then I suppose it's just on for giggles. But I live on a ranch with grandkids, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. Also, my driveway is frequently littered with log splitters, tools, wheel barrows, garden carts, motorcycles, etc, many of which are just below the rear window view and inside what I can see from the side-view mirrors as I back out of the garage - it would be useful, trust me.
