Hordes of gadget lovers and technology analysts have flocked to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week, trying to catch a sneak peek of the new innovations coming in 2013.
In fact, we’ve got a couple of guys on the ground there, too. (More on that in a few days.)
In the meantime, we’ve dug up an innovative new technology that you won’t see at CES…
Scientists from the University of Warwick have discovered a way to revolutionize the automotive industry… with infrared light.

The difference is, removing the cables would significantly lower manufacturing and maintenance costs.
