  Here Are Six Car Things We're Excited To See At CES Next Week © Provided by Univision Interactive Media, Inc. I (Erik here) have never been to Las Vegas, which I’m told is both kind of exhilarating in addition to being extremely bleak. Strangely, I’ve been told the same thing about CES, which I’ll be in Vegas to cover this year with Ryan Felton. Here’s the car stuff we’re excited about!

CES used to be called the Consumer Electronics Show but now is just called CES, with letters that don’t stand for anything. This is in part because the scope of the show has expanded so considerably since the first CES was held 50 years ago in New York City.

In recent years, CES has become a car show, in some ways even eclipsing the Detroit Auto Show as car companies seek to show off new technologies like electrification, autonomy and infotainment systems.

Mazda Vision Coupe Concept: A Gorgeous Signal of Aspirations

The seats appear thickly padded and luxurious, not thin and racy. Mazda kept further details and the car’s dimensions to itself, stressing that it merely is a concept car and that we shouldn’t get too excited.

Here ’s a roundup of the three things we ’ re most excited about next week Here ’s the schedule: Bethesda: Sunday, June 14, at 10 p.m. EST (competing with the Game of Thrones finale is a bold move, but more Fallout 4 news might well be worth skipping it).

Google I/O is May 28 and we ' re excited to see at the company's big conference. Here are the five big things we ’ re hoping to hear about: 1. Android M.

That stuff is what Ryan and I will be focused on next week, this being a car website and what have you. In no particular order, here’s some of the things we’re jazzed to see:

New Byton

Byton, which is pronounced “bite-on,” will be introducing their first drivable prototype at CES. We’ve already gotten roughly 68 emails from various PR people hyping it. Everyone’s excited, including us. Here’s a photo of the car, sent by one of those PR people:

Faraday Future

What, exactly, Faraday Future—which has struggled mightily to raise any funding to push ahead with its plan to build a Tesla-killing EV—intends to do at CES is a bit of a mystery. An invite went out last week for a possible event on Jan. 9, but little’s known about what’ll be shown. It’s hard to imagine the company’s going to roll out its flagship vehicle, the FF 91, once more. But getting a better sense of what Faraday’s trying to do, after such a tumultuous year, is something I’m eager to figure out. — RF

Refreshing or Revolting: Mazda RX Vision vs. Mazda Vision Coupe

  Refreshing or Revolting: Mazda RX Vision vs. Mazda Vision Coupe <p>Which futuristic Mazda concept wore it better?</p>On the outside, both cars have a remarkable amount in common. Yes, the RX Vision is two years old and has two fewer doors than the Vision Coupe, but if you saw both on the street, there would be no doubt they're related. They have very similar sloping rooflines, and the sheet metal almost has a liquid appearance.In fact, most of what looks like design lines are actually light reflecting off the curved surfaces and flared fenders.

From 3D printing to artificial intelligence, CES has moved beyond just high-tech devices to explore how evolving technology impacts the future. We ’ re here to help you navigate the massive event halls by outlining five things we ’ re most excited to see .

We ’ re going to level with you: it wasn’t a terribly exciting show overall this year. MUST SEE : Let’s pause for a moment to acknowledge all the shameless Apple ripoffs at CES 2016. Check out this new ,000 fridge’s key features right here . Portal Router.

Nissan and Brain Driving

So Nissan’s apparently going to have a simulator at CES that, in theory, will allow you to sit down at the wheel, pop on a skullcap like the one you see above, and let our brains do the driving. Nissan calls it brain-to-vehicle technology; I’ll call it a tad bit damn unnerving. — RF

Rinspeed’s Thing

Rinspeed’s known for over-the-top car concepts, but this is less of a car and more of a movable Unit. It’s called the Snap, and when it’s not in transit, a pod can be snapped off from the skateboard and become a place to relax. Rinspeed calls it a “cozy cuddling pod” or a “spacious camping pod.” I’m just looking forward to seeing it. — RF

The Breathless Chatter

There’s several panels organized to discuss The Future Of Driving, and what that means is a parade of Tech People are going to bestow upon us their great wisdom on how to make the Cities Of The Future. Autonomous! Electric! It’s happening! Now! What this likely won’t include is any dosage of reality to ground these optimistic folks and help them understand that it’s going to take a lot of damn work to make this sort of transformation an actual thing. Can’t wait. — RF

How the Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Man Pulls Off Those Fresh Moves

  How the Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Man Pulls Off Those Fresh Moves How the Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Man Pulls Off Those Fresh Moves From the October 2017 issueBecause a 1998 Plymouth Breeze no longer turns heads as it once did, used-car salesmen are masters of countless attention-grabbing gimmicks. Among the tactics, no shtick is simultaneously as eye-catching and absurd as the spastic flail of a perky nylon tube with vaguely human features.

The full schedule is at this link, but here are the five things we ’ re really hoping to see at the D23 Expo. We want want Disney is doing with Avatar in Orlando. Big, exciting , new Disney rides and areas for Marvel and Star Wars.

Ford CEO Jim Hackett

I might be the only person in the world who is excited for Jim Hackett, the CEO of Ford, but, by gosh, I’m excited for Jim Hackett. Hackett is giving a speech on Tuesday that will “focus on the development of mobility solutions as the world progresses toward smarter cities.” Translated into English, that means he’ll talk about *something* *something* “self-driving” *something* “electric” *something*. Humans will always be our best technology. — ES

That’s it! That’s all we’re excited to see. The rest of CES can buzz off. If you need us otherwise, we’ll be at the poker tables. Hopefully, we’ll survive. Ryan said that last year he was violently ill throughout the whole experience, which is no way to spend a few days in Vegas. If you find us, make sure to say hi. We’re nice! Honestly.

Yamaha Continues to Tease Us With New Tenere 700 World Raid Concept .
<p>Yamaha seems to have confirmed that some form of this off-roader will reach production at some point.</p>Indeed it would have, but that’s not what we got. Instead, we got the Tenere 700 World Raid prototype. In this case, “prototype” seems to mean that this bike is pretty much ready for production, but we aren’t confirming production quite yet. In Yamaha’s own words, the Tenere 700 is “a prototype model which is being used to develop the final specification of the production model.
