Discover Concept cars of the future shown at CES 2020 tech show in Las Vegas

CES 2020 is still going strong. Wednesday is the second day (of four) that the show floor is open in Las Vegas, and there's still plenty to see.

Wacky concept cars, flying machines and smart bikes are being exhibited at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.

In recent years, car tech has become an increasingly important staple of the expo as firms seek the next mega-product after the smartphone.

Chip-makers and app-creators are all piling in. But the traditional car-makers are not resting on their laurels.

The efforts go far beyond new sensors for driverless vehicles - this year there are a host of flamboyant designs for entire vehicles on show.

Called Vision AVTR, this Mercedes-Benz concept looks to merge driver with car through biometric tech and an immersive look at the world outside.

Some futuristic, way-off concept cars look like they're straight out of the movie Avatar. Mercedes-Benz's latest concept, debuting at CES 2020 on Monday, takes that connection one step further. Called Vision AVTR, for Advanced Vehicle Transformation, the show car is the result of an actual partnership between Mercedes-Benz and James Cameron's far-out film franchise.
