ONN – Sony Vision S Electric Concept Car At CES 2020 Will Never Be Made
Sony unveiled its Vision S Electric Concept Car at CES Las Vegas 2020, and the first reaction was “when can I buy it?” Well, the simple answer is that it’s not a car that was developed to be sold, but to be a rolling test bed for automobile-bound entertainment technology.
Sony views the automobile as the entertainment platform of the future. The technology company believes people will spend most of their time in the car, so it’s products should be tailored for it. Hence the Vision S.
I was told that the 5,000 pound car is not for sale, and may never be. My guess is that if demand for this is strong enough, that could change.
So, for Sony at CES 2020, the car was the star, unlike Pharrell last year, or Kelly Clarkson in 2010.
Note from Oakland news Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
