Late last month many special cars were displayed at a car show in Las Vegas.

One company introduced a special kind of car wheel that has a television in the middle. People can watch TV by looking at the wheels.

The company hopes to sell the wheels to taxi drivers and bus companies. They could play advertisements on the wheels.

A pick-up truck on display featured a giant TV that folds out from the trunk and a built-in BBQ grill. People could pull over to the side of the road and watch TV while cooking dinner.

One item on display was very impressive but probably wouldn't be allowed on open roads. It was a device that makes it so cars can shoot a 2m flame from the back exhaust.

"How cool is that?" said Kevin Dickinson, who works for the company that makes the device.(Staff Writer, with AFP)
