Apparently, Tesla Motors wants you to remind everyone that the glorious huge-ass touch display equipped in its electric vehicles has more used than automobile-related purposes. From now until June 30, 2019, the electric vehicle maker invites you to bring your friends and family to a Tesla showroom to experience the new Tesla Arcade.
Tesla Arcade is exactly what it sounds like, except that it does not have actual arcade cabinets and no quarters are required. Instead, you will be able to access a full library of games straight from the vehicle’s touchscreen, playing classic games like Atari Missile Command and Asteroids, as well as new games like Beach Buggy Racing 2 where you race in a kart across 22 tracks and using the steering wheel controls to manipulate the in-game vehicle.
I am not even kidding. That’s what Tesla is going with to get you to its showrooms so it can sell you its cars. But, really, getting drivers to play racing game in a car is not the best of ideas even when the car completely stationary. If you are down and also if you reside in the U.S., you can go check out Tesla Arcade yourself in one of its showrooms around the nation.
Your next charging session is going to be SO 👏 MUCH 👏 FUN 👏 pic.twitter.com/5YzSL36kCC— Tesla (@Tesla) June 18, 2019
