Audi shrinks self-driving computers, makes lights out of freakin' laser beams

Tonight saw Audi's pre-first-day CES keynote presentation, and this year's theme was iteration. Audi wouldn't tell you that was what the theme was — with them it's all "Vorsprung Durch Technik" (that's Advancement Through Technology) — but what Audi introduced was evolutions of announcements from preceding years.

What wasn't shown off at CES 2013 was the trunk of that car, which was packed with computer boxes to manage all of the millions of inputs per second that it was receiving from the sensors distributed around the car. This year, Audi drove out, err, had drive itself out, an A7, sans driver or passengers.
