Linux: New dash cam toy

I really wanted a dash cam so I could capture asteroid impacts.  :)  I got the cheapest thing on sale at Amazon.  What I found is that for Linux you don't need all the fancy stuff, since you can't display gps anyway.  You just need 1080p, and a 32 gb micro sdhc class 10 ability.  I just put it on the dash with 3M Command strips, other people might want to be fancy.

I used Openshot to trim the video, and that is great stuff.  Now I just need something exciting!

Added:  I've tested at night, and it is quite good.  It gets warm, so I wouldn't park and leave it in the window.
