'Gadget cars' make their debut in Las Vegas

Smart cars premiered at the Consumer Electronics Show, providing a glimpse into what the cars of the future might look like.

"Gadget cars" made their debut in Last Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The show featured smart cars with self-parking devices which will be sold to Europe later this year and cars that can stream voice-activated radio stations and can lock mobile phones while the car is in motion.

Concept cars - which will never go into production - were also featured, with US carmaker GM showing off a "bubble car" that gives consumers an idea of what transportation might look like in the year 2030.
