Wish you were in Vegas this week for endless
keynote speeches bags of cool tech swag, product demo’s and a glimpse into the future?
We have the next best thing: a full showfloor gallery of the coolest automotive tech displayed.
As a reminder, this below gallery (should) be the new lightbox setup. So after a pic opens in a new tab, the original page is now set up as a slideshow. Click the right-hand side of a photo to scroll to next pic, and the left-hand side of a pic to see previous photo.
Why a new tab first? As our tech boffins…
once if they come back from Vegas…. =]
The clear demo car for OEM supplier TRW, plus the new Mercedes F015 — which looks hideous but is actually very cool. The BMW i3 drive experience outside is also fun. They appear to have … ahem… plenty to sample.
Touch this, don’t touch that. Can’t you read the sign…?
The dozens of “Do Not Touch” signs throughout the cabin of the Tesla Model X prototype. Or the very, very embarrassing touchpanel concept in the Volkswagen Golf R Touch.
VW needs to focus on putting USB ports in *any* of its US-sold cars first before diving into a new touch operating system. The Golf GTI we tested had an iPhone 4 plug (yay!) but it did not charge or recognize my iPhone 4 (boo!).
Compare the Golf R’s glass head unit to Hyundai’s dash concept for a sense of backward yestertech in the VW.
