CES 2017: Las Vegas Special

Rory Cellan-Jones and the team visit the gigantic CES technology fair in Las Vegas where they try out the appliances and gadgets that could be in your home very soon. Dave Lee takes a ride in a prototype autonomous vehicle from Korean car giant Hyundai, while Rory finds out how BMW wants to entertain us when the car is doing the driving. Plus, we hear from the tech giant Sony on its plans to use artificial intelligence in its products, and we meet Danny Manu, a British inventor chasing his dream in Las Vegas to find someone who will manufacture his real-time language-translating earpods.
