Elon Musk has licensed some vintage Atari games for use on the Tesla's touch screen

Classic video games on Tesla's touch screen
People worry about "too much fun" in the driver's area, but what if the windshield was the screen?
Tesla creator, Elon Musk, has an interesting idea for the next upgrade to his car's touch screen. He wants to inject some fun and has met with Atari to make it happen. He wants classic Atari games on the touch screen and in particular has mentioned wanting the Tesla's steering Wheel to control Pole Position. Sounds cool, but I think he needs to go bigger.

Despite Musk saying the games could only be played when the car is in park, there will always be concerns about distracted drivers... even if they are not driving. ONe can put many safeguards n place, but why not make the game so immersive the driver doesn't want to drive the Tesla. Put Pole Position up on the Windshield like an encapsulated VR session.
