CES Day Two wrap-up: Lemmy's headphones, Stern's tables, and cars that park themselves

The avalanche of tech continues unabated

It's day two of CES 2013, and the avalanche of tech continues unabated. As was the case Tuesday, your friendly neighborhood journalists fought their way past 100,000 Lookie-Lous to dig the tech gems out of the crowd of also-rans.

Headphones were everywhere. Bone-conduction headphones. Fitness headphones. Our favorite? The Motorheadphones from Motorhead frontman Lemmy. Rather than boosting bass like so many celebrity-endorsed ear blasters do today, these emphasize the mid-range common to hard rock music.

There were tons of cool toys and other playthings at the show, too. We're not dumb, deaf, or blind, but we still couldn't wait to get our hands on the new Stern home pinball tables. Stern has made most of the pinball tables for arcades for more than a decade, and their home tables feature a playing field the same size and quality as you'll find in the arcade. The rest of the table is smaller and lighter, and cheaper, but it still costs about $2500.

That's a little pricey, but it's less than the cost of a new car. High-tech cars are all over the place this year. Nvidia's still pushing Tegra into cars, Chrysler has a highly connected Dodge Ram truck, and Audi is showing off a self-driving car.
