Death of the car wing mirror: New all-electric Audi e-tron ditches door mirrors and replaces them with live video feed from hi-tech cameras (so cyclists can still knock them off)

Utterly stupid 'tech for tech's sake'.

A mirror is simple and relatively cheap.
It works.
Why replace it with electronics. You still need to take your eyes off the road to look at a screen, so why not just look in the mirror!

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
