CES 2016: BMW shows off gesture-controlled concept car

BMW is showing off a concept car at CES that lets its occupants use hand gestures to control its entertainment system and heating, and even send commands to their smart home kit from afar.

The idea is to let the owners have a more relaxed experienced when the vehicle is in self-drive mode.

The automaker's head of user experience Holger Kampf showed the BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones how it works.
