Gadget fans get excited over Tokyo show

Tokyo Gadget Show has been whetting the appetite of its fanatics by releasing a tantalising glimpse into what electronics enthusiasts can expect from the future.

The Cutting-Edge IT & Electronics Comprehensive Exhibition (CEATEC) opened this morning (October 4th) to the thousands of people anxious to see what companies around the world have been coming up with.

Japanese carmaker Nissan had arguably the most impressive offering, showcasing a self-driving car that allows drivers to read a book or kick back for a snooze.

"Most accidents are caused by human error," Nissan commented, in a press release explaining the technology.

"Welcome to the future garage that Honda has designed. This is how automobiles and communities will be connected."

The participating companies are said to have their eyes on bringing their latest concepts to the consumers in time for the 2020 Olympics, when Tokyo's reputation for strong technological advancement is expected to come to the forefront.

Visitors to the capital before the big event are encouraged to visit the Sony and Panasonic showcase buildings, situated in Ginza and Odaiba respectively, for their taste of the future.
