2:53 /

CES 2013 kicks off with a flood of announcements: Nvidia is making its own portable gaming console, Fitbit takes on Nike with a Flex wristband monitor, and cars are packing more apps into the dashboard.

The CES Mania has begun. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. Our week-long CNET Update is at the Las Vegas Convention Center and I'm here to give you the rundown of what's going each day at the 2013 International Consumer Electronic Show. To kick things off, companies are holding press conferences and unveiling never-before-seen gadgets and one company started off with a big surprise. The computer chip-maker NVIDIA announced its making its own quad-core portable gaming console, the prototype is called the NVIDIA Shield but that name may change by the time it gets to consumers which could be as soon as a few months. Project Shield looks like a portable Xbox controller with a flip-up screen. The Shield has an analog joystick and buttons. NVIDIA says battery can last between 5 and 10 hours. It runs Android so it can connect online to play Android Games, Tegra Zone Games and some PC games. There's also a multiplayer option NVIDIA has always just sell processors not hardware so this will be a huge step for the company. And Fitbit known for making personal fitness monitors that clip on to your hip pocket now has one you can wear on your wrist all day long. It's called the Fitbit flex and it'll sell for $100 when it comes out this spring. The flex is going head to head with other fitness wristbands like the Nike Fuelband and Jawbone Up. This is a soft bracelet that monitors your movements, sleep and calories burnt. There are also LED lights on the band that will glow when you've hit your fitness goals. Navigation Company Garmond is known for selling GPS devices for your car dashboard but Garmond took things to a whole level by showing that [unk] your entire dashboard with the K2 Infotainment platform. Aside from giving directions, it will also display web data, social media or your calendar of course when you're parked because you don't need that distraction while you're driving. A screen by the wheel which show notifications on incoming calls, text and e-mails and instead of be reading on your phone, it can read at the lap***CUT DICTATION***
