CES 2014: Day One Recap

Toyota's Big Unveil, Cars Reign Supreme

CES this year seems to be geared more toward autos than actual handheld electronics. Toyota (TM - Get Report) unveiled a new fuel cell vehicle, due out in 2015. It's pretty sharp looking, and indicates the trend of CES slowly, but surely, becoming the Auto Show.

Google (GOOG - Get Report) also unveiled what it calls the Open Auto Alliance (OAA), as it seeks to bring Android to the car.

Audi, General Motors (GM), Honda (HMC), Hyundai and Nvidia (NVDA) are founding members of the partnership. The coalition has extended an invitation for other companies to join as well. "The OAA is dedicated to a common platform that will drive innovation, and make technology in the car safer and more intuitive for everyone," the coalition said in a press release. "This open development model and common platform will allow automakers to more easily bring cutting-edge technology to their drivers, and create new opportunities for developers to deliver powerful experiences for drivers and passengers in a safe and scalable way."

New Android-equipped cars should start to come to market by the end of 2014.

There was also hype surrounding electric cars, as Formula E-racing, which is being sponsored by Qualcomm (QCOM), showed off an electric racing car.

Anki Drive is Awesome

Perhaps the coolest thing that I saw was Anki Drive, an iOS enabled racing game, which I saw at Pepcom last night. 

San Francisco-based Anki was on stage with Apple at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference, showing off its wares.

This prompted me to stop and talk to company representatives, and even have a Twitter conversation with Marc Andreesen of venture capital firm Andreesen Horowitz about how cool the product was.
