Can we talk for a sec­ond about how Toy­ota killed it at CES this year? Their whole floor pres­ence was so cool and at­ten­tion-grab­bing. It helped that they had some great tech on dis­play as well.

Toy­ota has been toy­ing with hy­dro­gen as an al­ter­na­tive fuel source for quite some time now. The fact that they've ac­tu­ally brought the Toy­ota Mi­rai, their first ever hy­dro­gen­fu­eled ve­hi­cle, to mar­ket is some strong ev­i­dence that they're se­ri­ous. Their FCV Plus con­cept looks kind of like if they dipped the Bat­mo­bile in white and it's Toy­ota's next step in hy­dro­gen tech­nolo­gies. They're toy­ing with the idea that the fu­el­ing sys­tem on the FCV Plus will be able to grab elec­tric­ity di­rectly from hy­dro­gen stored out­side the ve­hi­cle.

Toy­ota also an­nounced AI re­search prior to CES this year, which turned out to be “Toy­ota Smart Cen­ter.” Toy­ota wants to see a con­nected mo­bil­ity society that gets from point A to B as quickly and as ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble. The pow­er­ful, pri­vate, cloud-based com­put­ing sys­tem col­lects in­for­ma­tion from ve­hi­cles all around the globe and pro­vides driv­ers with per­son­al­ized, on-the-go ser­vice. I just want to know if K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider can be or­dered as a voice op­tion.
