Elon Musk promises gaming platform for Tesla cars
Tesla cars are now much more than just cars. In addition to the basic features of a vehicle, many other features are already available thanks to its advanced on-board computer and large screen.
Now, Elon Musk has confirmed that a gaming platform will soon be implemented on Tesla cars. After a user thanked Musk and Tesla for allowing him to play the mythical Asteroids on his Tesla Model 3, the response he received could not be more surprising.
According to Elon Musk, the company is working on a port of Unity and Unreal Engine, the two most popular platforms among today’s great games.
Can you imagine playing Gran Turismo or Forza at the wheel of a Tesla?
In addition to mentioning support for a variety of tactile controls and compatibility with Xbox and PlayStation commands, Musk made the possibility even more surprising. The ‘visionary’ believes it will be possible to play racing titles using Tesla’s own steering wheel and pedals.
This would be an unexpected innovation for Tesla cars, especially after their Auto Pilot system is generating so much controversy. But it seems that the Tesla team has plenty of time to work on these unique projects. Although the statements came from Elon Musk himself, it would not be the first time he decided to ‘daydream’ on Twitter.
There is more information on the possible arrival of high quality games for Tesla cars, but it looks like it will actually happen. After all, when Elon Musk puts a thing in the head, it is rare that they do not materialize.
