The annual CES (Consumer Electronics Show) took place last week in an all-digital online venue for the first time in its history as a result of the pandemic. The mega tech industry trade show, which usually takes over Las Vegas in early January, is where many exhibitors unveil their latest innovations and gadgets to the public.
On the one hand, surely in the 21st century it’s appropriate for technological advances to be presented in a technological way, that is virtually over the internet. On the other hand, we missed the in-person event; perhaps you did too. And CES’ virtual showcase of startups and tech giants, keynotes from global industry leaders, live entertainment from Hollywood and so much more totalled up to well over 100 hours of conference programming!
This edition of the DVN-I Newsletter focuses on automakers’ and home-electronics giants’ trends, innovations, and technology presented at CES that are relevant to the auto interior community; in the next edition we’ll cover auto suppliers’ and startups’ presentations, so stay tuned.
Clearly the future car is electric, but with so much focus on SUVs we decided to take a look at what other kinds of models are in development. The Design Lounge this week looks at how several makers are working to compete against the Tesla Model S sedan.
