Washington Auto Show has Something for Everyone

Is it weird to say that the best thing I saw at the Washington Auto Show this year was not a car? It was this personal delivery robot from Starship Technologies. They will be on DC sidewalks in just a few days and will make the lives of many much easier. As someone who takes transit or walks for 99% of my trips, a robot that can carry heavy bags of soil and mulch right to my door is a wonderful use of this new technology!

I can also see it being a god-send for those with mobility issues, those stuck home on sick days, and those just too busy to squeeze one more errand into their day. The best part is you can track the robot with your smart phone and never miss a delivery -- wish I could do that with my UPS/FedEx guys!

bloggers and influencers
At the show press preview, along with several bloggers and influencers invited by SheBuysCars,com, we were able to wander the show floors without the big crowds. We shared all the cool stuff we saw in a live Twitter chat that evening. You can see our comments by searching for the #DCLovesAutos hashtag.

If you are interested in the best of the new hybrid electric vehicles, be sure to stop by the Hyundia booth to see the new Ioniq and while you are there, go next door moon over the new luxury cars from Genesis.

bikers have options too

The Washington Auto Show runs through Sunday, February 5, 2017. See www.washingtonautoshow.com for show details.
