The Virtual Rear View Mirror

By: Daniel Nase

This invention is a small single or multi-part LCD screen that is connected to one or more cameras near the rear of a semi. It essentially gives truck drivers a rear view mirror to enhance driver safety and minimize theft.  


Daniel Nase attended Pacific Lutheran University at the age of 15 in the Advance College Program and spent a lot of his time reading graduate papers in the university’s library. Many of his instructors and mentors were amazed with his ability to think outside the box in business, medicine, mathematics, chemistry and physics. Daniel started working on advanced calculus, Riemann equations and theoretical physics while he was attending Washington High School. He also participated in Air Force JROTC and earned a private pilots license through Clover Park Technical College.



Daniel joined the military at age 16 with parent permission and worked as an Apache / Chinook Helicopter Mechanic for several years before being recommended for an elite officer program in the Nuclear Field. For three years he was engaged in the Navy’s rigorous training program in Advanced Electronics and Nuclear Physics in Orlando Florida. He graduated at the top of his class and spent 9 months in the Mediterranean before being honorably discharged.




Daniel designed and built the AMTECH Thermonuclear Converter at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in July of 1997. This nuclear device provides electricity to deep space satellites and was created during the Pathfinder Mission. He also worked on X-ray tubes, electroplating, making silicon carbide crystals, electronic drafting, and generating 3D images in Silicon using two scanning lasers. He earned this prestigious summer internship through the MSEP program with Scott Minnix at the University of Washington and Linda Rodgers at NASA.



In 1997 and 1998 Daniel helped build a mainframe computer from scratch as part of the Work Study Program. He also learned basic AutoCAD and networked all of the computers in the University’s four-story Astrophysics building. After he built the mainframe, Daniel ran tests and recorded events in the University of Washington’s fusion reactor and also worked on the RAM Accelerator. 



Daniel took a non-executive role in Infinity Group to work as an Installation / Retrofit Engineer III for several years in the semiconductor industry. This is were he applied his training in the military by doing work in network engineering, applications engineering, robotics, UV optics, pneumatics and advanced electronics troubleshooting for KLA-Tencor Corp. He was responsible for installing and aligning Starlight and Lightning series reticle inspection systems throughout the world. This gave him the opportunity to improve his speaking ability in German, Japanese and French.
