In Pictures: The Automotive Technologies We Saw At CES 2013
The Consumer Electronics Show is the stepping-out event for many different types of products. Although mobile audio vendors are long-time veterans of CES (and they usually introduce new offerings at the show), automotive manufacturers are much more new to the game. It was only a couple of years ago when Alan Mulally gave his first CES keynote address, even as other manufacturers were busy prepping for the Detroit Auto Show, shying away from the more electronics-oriented event.
This year was different, as more automotive manufacturers embraced CES, building large extravagant booths, which we roamed the halls to cover.
Typically, Tom's Hardware editors from around the country (and indeed the world) fly into Las Vegas, Nevada, while our esteemed editor-in-chief, Chris Angelini, drives in from Bakersfield on his own. This year was different, though. Since we're covering automotive technology more often, we gave our friends at Nissan USA a call to set up something a little flashier for the ride.
The company graciously agreed to loan Tom’s Hardware a 2013 GT-R Black Edition for our week in Sin City, though we're saving the details of that car for a complete write-up coming soon.
