Watch Tesla's Steering Wheel-Controlled Game in Action

Watch Tesla's Steering Wheel-Controlled Game in Action
Elon Musk continues to push the boundaries of technology and business. He recently announced that 'Beach Buggy Racing 2' would be playable on all Tesla Model S, X and 3s this month. But instead of using the massive touch screen built into the device to control your character, you use the actual Tesla steering wheel and brake pedal to win races! When in park of course. 


Tesla has always prided itself on treating its electric vehicles like computers, and it often boasts the ability to send game-changing, over-the-air updates to its cars that add everything from improved self-driving capabilities to silly Easter eggs like “James Bond mode.” Now, Tesla is going one step further and turning its cars into full-blown video game consoles to use when it charges, for example. 


This move seems to only be the start for Musk and Tesla's venture into video games though, with Cuphead, a cult-favourite platformer set to launch in the coming months, as well as Fallout Shelter set to hit Tesla screens soon. 


The Verge were recently lucky enough to get a hands-on test 'drive' of the new video game that will become a part of Tesla Arcade, their new gaming hub or store. They reported that the steering was surprisingly responsive due to Tesla’s software unlocking the steering wheel from its standard rigidness when parked. But you can also adjust the sensitivity of the steering to your preference.

The Verge went on to report the brake pedal felt like it had a realistic slow-down effect on the car. Lastly, there's split-screen multiplayer for the passenger to use the touch screen controls, and you don't have to drive a cartoony car, you actually get to drive your own Tesla model in-game! 

Check out the hands-on test by The Verge below! Available for all compatible Tesla Models right now.
