Taiwan smart-car designer teams up with Acer

Studio X-Gene founders Albert Yang and Riviera Chiang pose with their first-generation electric smart car, the Avant GT. They say the car may go into mass production in the "near future."

TAOYUAN, Taiwan -- A sleek, Taiwan-made electric car with an advanced telematics system attracted great interest at an event in May held by PC maker Acer to showcase the tech company's latest "cloud" technologies.

     Acer's foray into smart cars is part of the company's shift away from the dwindling notebook personal computer market. It wants to jump onto the Internet of things bandwagon to catch the next wave of innovation in mobile technology.
