While the category might include robots, drones dominated CES 2015. We don't mean the businessmen and businesswomen that trudged the Las Vegas Convention Center with looks of thunder on their faces, but the flyable, camera-attached kind.

Compared to other trade shows (E3 being the prime offender), the Consumer Electronics Show floor is relatively quiet. That didn't stop the folks at DTS from showing off their new DTS:X codec however. It separates audio into objects instead of channels so instead of say, left, right, front, rear, c...

When NVIDIA debuted its Drive CX platform and X1 mobile chipset at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, we were impressed by how it handled and displayed in-car data.
