The world's top Consumer Electronics Show (CES) informally got under way in Las Vegas on Saturday with an early glimpse at smart cars, robotic massages and other innovations.

"It basically makes fuel burn a lot better," said George Souris of MTech.' "This is the year that CES is going green, so we want this to be our contribution to that goal."

Car maker Continental demonstrated technology that lets vehicles guage conditions and even communicate with each other to help drivers avoid crashes.
Energy-saving devices, hyper-efficient batteries, and computer-controlled homes that sip instead of guzzle power will be featured as CES displays an environmentally-sensitive side.
