Cars roll into CES with holograms, voice controls and autonomous features

Culture
Autonomous cars ruled the road at CES 2017. Everyone from BMW, to Ford, to Hyundai showed off their self-driving car technology. It knows there's a crosswalk here. So it has stopped and shown even a little yellow, there it is. That says okay. When it sees that, it means I've detected a pedestrian and I'm making a decision based on that. That says I'm stopped for that reason. So now we're all clear, it goes on it's own. If you're a car company and you don't have an economist vehicle offering, you're gonna go the way of a lot of tech companies that didn't keep up with paradigm shifts in their industry. In the future, the controls of your car may not be on your dashboard. They may be in the air. BMW's concept car has holograms to start the car, play music, or even shop. with a tactile feedback, so it feels like you're pressing a button. So these three components work in tandem. So when you see, for example, a start button now, you can very slowly, with a single finger, dive into this and you [INAUDIBLE] Feedback. Yeah. Each seat has its own speakers built into the headrest, and because only the driver can see the hologram, the video calls could be more private. You take the call, the audio is switched off, I continue to listen to Beethoven, and you listen to The conversation you were having. And you can see [CROSSTALK]. In addition to a bigger ride, cars are becoming a sort of remote control for your smart home. Hyundai and Ford have incorporated virtual assistance like Amazon's Alexa and Google home so your car can connect with your smart home devices. Alexa is set to thermal start at 68 degrees. Setting thermostat heat to 68. Perfect, so this actually communicated to my home in Michigan from Las Vegas. So the temperature at my house is now gonna to 68��. Wow, so the distance doesn't matter. [CROSSTALK] Doesn't matter right, yes run over the Internet, yep. If you're not driving your car what are you doing inside your car? Automakers are in envisioning a new place to work or relax. Microsoft is working on putting Skype and Office features into cars to help with productivity. Because what this system does, the system knows about you and about your calendar and when it find some appointment. For example Tonight 8 PM with Susan, do you want to book a restaurant? [SOUND] Yes, show me the best restaurants. Here are the top three restaurants close to your destination. Toyota unveiled a concept car that has a feature called chauffeur mode, which reclines the drivers seat, sets mood lighting, and even blows cool air on your neck. And you should even be receiving a lower back massage. Yeah I'm feeling that. Is that some air blowing on my neck too? You feel that? [LAUGH] Yeah. Faraday Future hopes to be the car for now. The electic car maker that wants to compete against Tesla, unveiled it's FF91 production model, which Faraday says will hit the road in 2018. For more on CES 2017, go to cnet.com.
