Black Box
An app that turns your iPhone into a 'black box' recorder in the event of an accident, has been revealed at the Hong Kong Electronics fair

The world and his wife is doing its best to prove there's an app for every occasion, and the latest example is this black box recorder function for cars.

Revealed at the Hong Kong Electronics fair, the IBB-01 iPhone Black Box is mounted on the windscreen and comes with a built-in wide-angle camera, a 4GB SD card memory and an internal g-force sensor.

The device records continuously until the G-sensor detects a sudden deceleration or impact, at which point it will store what happened 20 seconds before the event and 15 seconds after, providing vital evidence.

The unit will store the vehicle's speed and location using the iPhone's built-in GPS satellite-navigation, and can even export the location of the incident to Google Earth or provide a printable accident report.

Still in the development stage as far as we can see, visit the iMusicTech website for more information (if you can get it to load, that is).
