It would appear than more and more of us want to channel our inner geeks out on the open road. Borne to the laptop, weaned on the cell phone, we are now so afraid of being without the world wide web that our cars have become, quite literally, little more than mobile hot spots. Indeed, Audi claims that the connectivity of its, er, Audi Connect systems is the second most cited reason, after performance, for the purchase of its luxury automobiles.

It should come as no surprise, then, that what once was a Consumer Electronics Show has slowly morphed into a car show about electronics. Indeed, the keynote speaker for this year's 2014 CES show in Las Vegas was none other than Rupert Stadler, chairman of Audi AG (pictured), who promised, amongst other things, a self-driving Audi in the not so distant future.
