The single BOK -- apparently -- -- plastic fork gap as temporary and it's even if fairly even -- even dishwasher safe place.
Well that's I guess that's that what you would call a selling point -- -- What's your wireless charging and Bluetooth -- speaker now that sounds like you know another century invention here what's going on.
Well here's the thing.
We're seeing more wireless charging here at at CS where you don't have to hook up you're.

Men and what's good about this is.
Previously you could get these kind of phones that we're we're whether water resistance but they weren't great -- these ones as a couple of really good ones is the Sony Xperia -- the which is Sony's new flagship Smartphone.
This is certainly you know has very good -- that has every sign of being a very good found but it also has the water resistance you don't have to have a big -- Heavy phone anymore to have this kind of protection people really do worry about their Smartphones they worry a lot about losing -- -- readers tell us a lot about that.

Well yes but it's -- research vehicle first of all second all.
Just -- to it to allay the idea that we're all gonna get driven around by our cars anytime soon.
This this -- -- research car.
And Toyota went out of its way to say don't expect to launch a driver -- -- but what they will do is use this technology which uses radar to GPS and cameras and so on.
They'll use that.
To make cars more safe in the future they'll start adding some of these things on so for example.
Your Toyota or Lexus of the future might be able to tell you if -- cars coming up really fast senior blind spot if you pulled into what it might actually automatically.
Keep the car in its lane so unfortunately we're not gonna be chauffeured around by our cars anytime soon.
