One of the biggest rumors leading up to CES was a partnership between Google and Audi; that came true, but the power behind it all is NVIDIA. NVIDIA has announced three new in-vehicle systems powered by their Tegra Visual Computing Module that will soon begin shipping in Audi models, offering a connected infotainment experience, an automotive-grade tablet that is fully integrated into the car, and a high-resolution digital cockpit with vivid 3D graphical displays. We’re excited to see partnerships like this that bring raw computing power to our automobiles–but with great power comes great responsibility; so here’s to hoping that consumers take the same care in using this new car tech as manufacturers take in designing them.

I know some contractors that will find this iPhone accessory particularly handy…
FLIR is a thermal case for the iPhone 5 and 5S that delivers thermal imaging from heat signatures, animals, and other environmental sources up to 100 feet away.

The FLIR One will begin shipping in the spring and will be available in white, grey or gold variations.
Have you noticed the lack of GoGo in-flight internet in Canada? I surely have–and that’s about to come to an end. Gogo has officially gotten approval to go live over Canada, promising seamless wireless connectivity to travelers anywhere in North America.

Garmin has introduced its first nüvi navigation device with a wireless backup camera. The $399.99 portable GPS is the first in its line to offer the wireless accessory, offering customers even more choices when they are looking to upgrade their vehicle with Garmin’s premium navigation units. The new navigator features a 7-inch display, allowing users to easily spot people, vehicles and obstructions when backing up. The camera itself can be mounted on the back of any vehicle, and Garmin says that it’s rugged enough to withstand the harshest of weather. The camera can ideally be mounted and wired to the vehicle’s reverse lights for power, making the camera automatically turn on the live feed when you go into reverse; otherwise you’ll need to connect it to an “always on” power source for manual switching when you want to see what’s behind you.
