Lisa Ling [corrected] and her husband built a "green" house using solar panels from Panasonic.
What are the four pillars of Panasonic's energy solutions? Creating, storing, saving, and managing energy.
So, you can store energy created by Panasonic lithium batteries, and use when you need it.
The cloud will play an absolutely essential role in managing energy, Taylor says. By the way, he's Panasonic North America CEO
Panasonic will work with companies like IBM to come up with global solutions for managing energy.
Now, we're going to see some of Panasonic's products for cars, it seems.
My bad it is Lisa Ling not Lisa Liu. I mistyped.
Tsuga's back on stage, talking about Americans' relationships with their cars
Apparently, he had a 1965 Mustang convertible when he came to the U.S. to go to grad school.
Panasonic's global automotive partners include VW, Audi, Daimler, Chrysler, Ford, GN, Tesla, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Mazda
The company's home energy solutions are being adapted for cars, Tsuga says.
Now we are talking cars and Panasonics smart technology. Another trend I am noticing at CES. Everyone wants a piece of the "smart" automotive market.
They're now playing a video from Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, talking about the Panasonic batteries that power Teslas.
So, it's on to automotive battery management, and the power management system and heat management system that is behind electric vehicle batteries.
Phil Aram, Chief Information Officer, GM is now on stage with a Chevy Malibu Eco.
They're talking about some of the systems in the car that are powered by Panasonic
Abram: Panasonic has developed a customizable and flexible framework...that allows for new apps to be created that lets them add new features after they've bought their car.
It amazes me how really large companies such as Panasonic can have their hand in so many different technologies. It seems difficult enough to focus enough and innovate in one area. But to do it in so many different areas is really a huge challenge.
It's amazing to me that this kind of innovation (if you can call it that) is still noteworthy. Then again, my car doesn't run any apps at all. :-)
I wonder: Ford seems like the leader in in-car app systems, so it could be interesting to see how GM does it.
Now they're on to talking about how Panasonic helps business. As in making tools that helps businesses talk to each other. And the tools that help employees do their best.
Now, it's on to Panasonic's Windows 8-based 4K tablet, a 20-inch tablet.
Looks pretty sweet, I have to say.
A stylus for the tablet...It lets you write directly on the screen. And all changes made on screen with the stylus (or by hand) can be implemented directly over the cloud.
Let's see how Panasonic is helping McDonald's offer clean, advanced restaurants.
It seems that for one franchise owner, much of his tech (at his 18 McD's stores) is powered by Panasonic: POS, TVs, cameras, communications, etc.
And now, it's on to on-the-go productivity tools.
Tsuga is back on stage talking about Panasonic's 275 airline partners and thousands of planes with Panasonic technology.
The next level of avionics tech, including many planes with built-in global Internet tech.
United Airlines has implemented Panasonic in-flight tech. And the airline will become Panasonic's largest customer for its in-flight tech.
Hers's the CEO of Air New Zealand, to talk about Panasonic's tech.
