Audi and NVIDIA team up promises “world’s most advanced AI car” by 2020

Audi and NVIDIA team up promises “world’s most advanced AI car” by 2020

With NVIDIA's laser focus on gaming hardware, you'd be forgiven if you forgot that it actually partnered with Audi seven years ago. Today, we're getting a look into what that partnership will eventually yield: advanced AI cars on the road by 2020. That's according to a joint announcement NVIDIA and Audi made during a CES 2017 presentation.

Hubble Hugo mood-tracking smart camera has Alexa onboard

Hubble Hugo mood-tracking smart camera has Alexa onboard

Amazon's Alexa continues its march across the smart home, showing up next in Hubble's Hugo, an eyeball-like motorized camera that can also figure out your mood. Part-security camera and part-robot, Hugo is a spherical lens atop a moving base, and actually looks quite a bit like 'bots from Jibo and LG. What those robots can't do, though, is tell when you're furious just by glancing at you.

Vuzix Blade 3000 smart glasses hands-on: Spectacles’ less-dorky cousin

Vuzix Blade 3000 smart glasses hands-on: Spectacles’ less-dorky cousin

Snapchat's Spectacles may have given wearable cameras the consumer-acceptance Google Glass never had, but a far more capable set of specs could steal their thunder. Vuzix - which has been pushing head-mounted displays for several years now, though primarily to enterprise users and developers - brought its latest glasses to CES this week, the Blade 3000. While at first glance they might look like regular glasses, they're actually outfitted with a transparent display.

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

The Razer Project Valerie laptop has three displays - and all three are really, truly dedicated to gaming. Each of these displays is connected to the base computer, creating a laptop that's thicker than the company's standard Razer Blade, but all the more versatile as a result. While this notebook isn't the sort we'll be trusting around clumsy miscreants while engaged, the hardware used to make this project a reality is well worth the gander.

ODG AR smart glasses hands-on: Snapdragon 835 gets real

ODG AR smart glasses hands-on: Snapdragon 835 gets real

The first Snapdragon 835 device isn't a phone, and it isn't a tablet: it's a set of augmented reality glasses. Two sets of glasses, to be precise, the handiwork of ODG - or Osterhout Design Group - flush with a recent $58m cash injection from 21st Century Fox who have been pushing augmented reality and smart glasses for a decade now. While you might associate Snapdragon with phones, there are plenty of good reasons you might want the new 835 in a computer for your face.

Basslet is the wearable subwoofer watch you’ve been looking for – sort of

Have you ever come home from a night of dancing, gone to bed, and then tried to relive last night's sonic glory on your own personal audio system only to discover it lacked the body-abusing 'thump' of the club's subwoofers? Of course you have - but now there's a solution that fits right over your wrist. It's called Basslet.

Faraday Future FF 91: Five things you need to know

Faraday Future FF 91: Five things you need to know

If Faraday Future's 2016 CES was shaky, with a last-minute prototype wheeled out instead of the electric car the company had intended to show, then CES 2017 has proved far more dramatic. The freshly-unveiled FF 91 has everything you need from an EV aiming to show up the gas-powered mainstream: sky-high power figures, big range claims, and the sort of technology that you'd expect from Silicon Valley players turned automakers. Here are five big things you need to know.

Microsoft aims for hearts, minds, and eyeballs of autonomous vehicle riders

Microsoft aims for hearts, minds, and eyeballs of autonomous vehicle riders

Whereas much of the autonomous car hype centers around the sensors and processing technology necessary to tackle the self-driving challenge, Microsoft is more interested in what you're going to do with all the time you'll be spending while en route, but not behind the wheel. Specifically, the software giant has banded together with partners NXP, IAV, Swiss Re, and Cubic Telecom to demonstrate how it plans to fit in to the driverless future at CES.

Leka robot ball hands-on: bigger than Sphero (with a face!)

Leka robot ball hands-on: bigger than Sphero (with a face!)

While Sphero might have the tiny remote-control ball market cornered, it would seem that Leka is aiming for the next size up. Leka is a robotic companion ball aimed at children. While it might be aimed specifically at children with special needs, we couldn't help but be entranced by the possibilities in everyday mobile play. This ball has a face, after all, and far be it for me to deny the joy of chasing a cartoon robot creature across the floor.

Toyota Concept-i’s friendly AI is your autonomous car co-pilot

Toyota Concept-i’s friendly AI is your autonomous car co-pilot

My idea of a talking car is Knight Rider's KITT making snarky rejoinders to David Hasselhoff, but Toyota has more loving discourse in mind with its latest Concept-i. Revealed today at CES 2017, the new vehicle prototype aims to usher in autonomous driving with the aid of the driver-vehicle relationship. That involves an artificial intelligence (AI) called Yui and a whole lot of LEDs.
