BMW i Inside Future concept makes the dashboard a tactile hologram

So far, there's been no lack of autonomous cars at CES, but BMW is taking things in a different direction with its i Inside Future concept. While the concept is steeped in a future where autonomous cars are the norm, it has little to do with the technology that will make these cars go. Instead, this "sculpture," as BMW is calling it, deals entirely with what our car interiors could look like once we make the jump to fully autonomous car.

ASUS ZenFone AR hands-on: Daydream and Tango under one roof

The ZenFone 3 Zoom wasn't the only phone ASUS brought to CES, introducing us to the ZenFone AR as well. Of course, we had a feeling that such a phone would get a reveal thanks to an early leak from Qualcomm, but at this point, that's neither here nor there. The ZenFone AR has been made official, and it packs support for Google Tango and Daydream into the same device.

Here’s the FF 91, Faraday Future’s long-awaited electric vehicle

It's been a long time coming, but Faraday Future has finally taken the stage at CES 2017 to reveal its first electric vehicle, dubbed the FF 91. Ask Faraday senior vice president of engineering Nick Sampson, though, and the FF 91 is more than just a car - it's a "new species," that will be "the world's first ecosystem connected car." There are four different components to that ecosystem, and Sampson took us through each before pulling the veil off the car for the first time.

Philips hue heats up to fight smart bulb tide: Interview

You could hardly walk five paces through the halls at CES 2015 without stumbling over a wireless light bulb. Connected lighting seems determined to be the point of entry to domestic home automation, and there are plenty - startups and larger - hoping to corner the market. Ironically, then, the company which arguably created the market, Philips, had decamped to a nearby hotel, outfitting a suite with a full array of hue bulbs and lamps. I stopped by to get a demo of the newest 12 Monkeys hue light-soundtrack support, as well as to find out what's coming up next as the smart home accelerates.

Parrot Drones gen-2: hands-on with the next Sumo and Spider

Parrot has sent out their drones in the sky and on the ground to capture the audience’s attention at CES. Flying gracefully in the air and roughing it on the ground has stirred up a crowd that shows strong interest in the prototype drones. Parrot's success with drones started back in 2010 with the AR.Drone, then branching out from flying models to other form factors. It's those which come in for attention here at CES, with a range of upgrades that includes a beast that does off-road droning.

AmpStrip packs Band-Aid with biometrics: Hands-on

Fitness wearables haven't been in short supply here at CES, but whether they're on your wrist as a watch or band, or clipped to your clothes, there's the hassle of always remembering to attach them. AmpStrip aims to bypass that by sticking to your skin, a digital, wireless Band-Aid that can track heart rate and movement and then funnel that data via Bluetooth to your phone. By opting for direct skin contact, AmpStrip says, not only are the biometric readings more accurate, but you can go several days without having to think about the sensor itself.

Acer’s Chromebook 15 is just what Chrome OS needs

For everyone who has begged for a larger Chromebook, there seems to be several others who can't get their heads around Chrome OS on a bigger than 13-inch display. Acer is wading into that argument head-on, launching the Chromebook 15 at CES this week, and in the process becoming the first manufacturer to offer Google's web-centric platform on a "traditionally" sized notebook. With many seeing Chromebooks as the spiritual successors of netbooks - ultraportable and super-affordable - you can understand the confusion around the Chromebook 15, but it turns out there are several good reasons for its existence.
