The Consumer Electronics Show, more commonly known as CES is took place in Las Vegas this month. CES has debuted many great inventions we use today such as plasma TVs, Blu-ray players, and ultra-thin laptops. However, the buzz this year in Las Vegas isn’t about the latest Apple product; the spotlight has been stolen by car manufactures such as BMW and Audi who just unveiled their new self-driving car technologies.
As intriguing as it sounds to have my car drive itself as I read my paper, catch-up on emails, or simply daydream, in reality, I actually enjoy driving. Sure, I’m not crazy about sitting in traffic, but there is no substitute for fully navigating a 4,000 lb car with the slight shift of my hands and feet and hearing the roar of the engine. In fact, I still miss my manual transmission car. So for the time being, I’m glad the self-driving car is just a concept, it gives me more time to drive myself around.
