This year’s Consumer Electronics Show may be in Las Vegas, but its heart is in Detroit. Ahead of the start of the show tomorrow, major automakers are already making big announcements of partnerships that will tighten the bond between cars and technology.

Also expected at CES 2016 is the unveiling of the Chevy Bolt, a moderately-priced electric car. Of course, there will also be plenty of wild gadgets, including advancements in wearable tech and the latest for drones and rideables.

Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with Edmund Lee of Re/code for a look ahead to CES 2016.
