VIDEO: The North American International Auto Show has lots of Cool Technology, especially Ford

See the empty plate? That's where my son's American Coney Island Coney Dog used to be before he wolfed it down :)
American Coney Island and the Detroit Auto Show make for a Great Evening Out...

Tonight my son and I attended the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) at Cobo Hall. We made an evening of it by first stopping for coney dogs and fries at American Coney Island and then walking the three blocks over to Cobo Hall.

The crowds were light during the evening so we were able to see everything up close and personal.  We even got to ride in the electric cars on the lower level.

Many of the auto companies have interactive technology built into their displays so that vistors can learn about the companies while having a fun experience. My son had a blast playing with all the technology. But the highlight of the entire show was the Ford display.

Visitors to the Ford display are able to drive with motorsports star Ken Block to highlight Ford's EcoBoost technology. Now I am a little biased since I am an employee, but I think Ford has the most awesome interactive display in the entire show.

Check it out for yourself in the video below staring my son. Warning: This kid is a total ham ....
