A look at the first tech announced in Vegas Start ups that exhibited at CES's Eureka Park zone over the past four shows have collectively attracted more than $1bn (680m) in investment since 2012, according to the event's organiser, New Balance France so it's about more than just titillating the public. But for the larger companies, revealing a product in advance might reflect the fact that it didn't quite make the cut to be spotlighted in one of the tightly timed press conferences. Fitness tech looks like being one of the show's big themes, and Technogym is looking to update its range of high end gear with a treadmill that plays a "personalised music soundtrack" based on the speed the user is running at. The firm says its system works by matching the rhythm of a song to the number of steps per minute it detects the person is jogging at.

Spotify already does something similar with its app for street runners, but Technogym says it's the first to bring the idea to a treadmill. Meanwhile, iFit has announced a treadmill of its own fitted with a 60in (1.52m) curved OLED screen. The company says it can use data from Google Maps to create the sensation of running in "exotic locations". Haters of vertical video better look away. In drone news, China's DJI has revealed a modest change to its line up. Its high end Inspire 1 Pro now comes in black great for those who like their unmanned aircraft to look that bit more menacing. It also has a new version of the Phantom 3 that incorporates New Balance MRH 996 AD Chaussures camera but has a less powerful data transmission system than the "professional" version of the drone. As a consequence it can only be flown from up to 1.2km (0.75 miles) away instead of 5km (3.1 miles) which from a safety point of view doesn't sound like a bad thing. On the roads, Toyota has thrown in its lot with Ford and committed itself to adopting the SmartDeviceLink platform. The system allows smartphones to connect to a vehicle's dashboard and represents an effort by the automakers to pursue their own technology rather than fitting Google or Apple's in car alternatives.
