Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has always been a bit of an unpredictable force. Most recently, that force has manifested itself into incorporating video games into their Tesla vehicles.
A series of Tweets by Musk reveals that the automaker is working on getting Unity and Unreal, two of the most popular video game engines, to work through a Tesla vehicle.
While supporting the engines would support any game that uses them, Musk has expressed interest in a select number of games, such as Rocket League and Fortnite. He has also expressed interest in getting Minecraft and Roblox to work in the vehicles, but these two games do not use either the Unreal or the Unity engine.
Fortnite is the most popular video game in the industry at the moment, raking in billions of dollars. Though the game is most popular with teens and young adults. You know, people too young to drive a Tesla.
There are also some legal ramifications to this. At the current moment, drivers still have to have their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road while autopilot is active. This is to ensure that human control can be taken over if needed. A driver would in no way be allowed to play video games while autopilot is running. Many would also believe that even the act of the passenger using the infotainment screen to play video games would be too distracting to the driver.
But while waiting on a charge or to pick someone up, this might be an entertaining option.
