Autos Makers Add Fancy Gadgets

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is starting to tease Facebook users about some of the truly unique innovations that will be on exhibit this year. The one that caught my eye was from the Swiss engineering and design firm Rinspeed. 

The Etos from Rinspeed is a “concept” sports car which boasts a fully autonomous steering wheel that folds away when the driver wants to relax. The displays in the car morph into a Harman entertainment system. The system also responds to human voice commands. Now that’s a wowwee.

The Etos also offers a drone with its own landing pad. This is pretty awesome. I can just see it now. I never leave the car. I just give orders to the drone. “Get me this. Do that for me. Fly here and there.” 

That works for me. More in January.
