There's still a couple months left of winter, and Nissan decided to make the best of it by transforming a 370Z into a massive snow tank, called the 370Zki. How? They removed the vehicle's driveline, raised the body 3-inches, manufactured custom mounts for the rear springs, rerouted the brake lines / exhaust, and then fitted American Track Truck tracks at the rear axle.

There's self-parking cars, and then Nissan's innovative self-parking slippers, which greet guests at 'ProPilot Park Ryokan'. After you've finished wearing them, the slippers automatically drive themselves back to their original position, thanks to two small wheels, a motor, and sensors. "The self-parking slippers are meant to raise awareness of automated driving technologies, and their potential, non-driving applications," said Nissan spokesman Nick Maxfield. Continue reading for the full video demonstration and more information.
Forget self-driving cars, Nissan has unveiled B2V (Brain-to-Vehicle) technology at CES 2018. This will basically allow vehicles to interpret signals coming directly from the driver's brain, this improving reaction times for drivers, as well as to making the car's more adaptable. "When most people think about autonomous driving, they have a very impersonal vision of the future, where humans relinquish control to the machines. Yet B2V technology does the opposite, by using signals from their own brain to make the drive even more exciting and enjoyable," said Nissan executive VP, Daniele Schillaci.

Sony's PS4 Pro is great for racing games, but for something more realistic, you may need to check out this remote-controlled Nissan GT-R. You read that right, the automaker heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely with a DualShock 4 controller, and called it the "GT-R /C". It was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone's National Circuit, where the car hit a top speed of 131 mph and averaged 76 mph. To make things easy (and safer), it was controlled from a helicopter that followed the race car around the track. "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. The GT-R /C has brought my two worlds together - the virtual of gaming and the reality of motorsport - in a way I never thought possible. The response from the car when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. JLB Design has done an incredible job at making everything respond really well. Steering, acceleration and braking were all intelligently configured, allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights," said Mardenborough.
