LAS VEGAS (AP) - Driveables and wearables could be among the highlights of this year's International CES gadget show in Las Vegas.

GM says it will start outfitting most Chevrolet vehicles with 4G cellular capabilities in partnership with AT&T. The technology will let drivers make phone calls and allow passengers to surf the Web without burning through the voice and data limits on their phone plans.

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette will have a new system that lets owners record their drives, edit the video and share it with friends using a windshield-mounted camera, a microphone and a recorder to track data.

Meanwhile, upstart entrepreneurs and major manufacturers such as Samsung, Qualcomm and Sony are hoping wearables get some traction.

Gadget lovers can expect Several companies to unveil wearable devices that are easier to use, extend battery life, and tap into the power of gestures, social networks and cloud computing.

The wearables wave is still in its early phases.
