Tesla already has a few games in the cars right now. Asteroids, 2048, Missile Command to name a few. They are adding and taking away games all the time (last year Elon tweeted a reminder that more games are coming to Tesla). There isn’t much space on the computer to have a lot as it wasn’t designed for gaming. For safety the cars have to be in park to play the games. But maybe in the future when Full Self Driving is out we should be able to play the games when the car is driving us. That is weird to say.
The two games Elon showed off today at E3 where CupHead and Beach Buggy Racing 2. Of course the car needs a racing game as you have a steering wheel in front of you. That is what you use to control the game. Or if you like you can hook up a Xbox or PS3 controller to the usb ports and have a normal gaming experience. The game CupHead is an older looking game made to mimic the Mickey Mouse cartoons from long ago, but fighting crime.
How To Access Easter Eggs Games on Tesla
The way you access the games now is you tap the Tesla logo on the top of the screen and a car drops down. After a few seconds a menu appear showing all the Easter Eggs. There are more that just games in this menu. The fart app Elon says is his “finest work yet.” You also have a sketch pad and more. In the future you will be able to add and delete game through wifi to pass the time at Superchargers. This possibly opens up a large app store for Tesla.
Netflix and Youtube Soon on Tesla
If video games aren’t your cup of tea then soon you will be able to watch Netflix and stream YouTube videos right on the screen. The car will need to be in park and on wifi but again this is great for superchargers or waiting for the kids to get out of school.
There are many great things that Tesla is doing for the world and humanity. Why not have a little fun along the way. Elon said at Tesla they just try and make the cars as fun as possible.
