New car technology – level 2

11-01-2023 07:00

In the 1980s, the movie “Back to the Future” showed flying cars, and people thought that we might have flying cars in the 2000s.

We didn’t, but a company showed an early flying car at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The car transitions from the ground to the air, and you can fly it in a simulation; the company hopes to finish the car in 2026.

CES is an important tech event, and this year, car technology was a focus. People saw electric race cars, a large remote-controlled dump truck, the flying car, a car that changes color, an electric car with many sensors and cameras, a truck that follows you if you get out, and new software to run devices in the car.

Difficult words: transition (to change from one situation to another), simulation (a model to show what something is like to use), sensor (a device that reads and collects information).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
