Elon Musk has done it again - and by 'it', I mean 'gone too far'. The tech entrepeneur recently announced on the Tesla-centric podcast Ride The Lighting that the 2017 run-and-gun video game Cuphead has been ported onto the Tesla's operating system and will be playable via the vehicle's in-car display.
This isn't the first time a video game has been playable in Tesla vehicles - various Atari games have been hidden as easter eggs - but the addition of Cuphead is noteworthy on two accounts: number one, the game is significantly more advanced than those retro 80s classics and, number two, the game is notoriously difficult.
Cuphead isn't exaclt the kind of game you can just dip into whilst driving, it's more the sort of game where you watch your housemate pull out his hair in frustration as he tries and fails to beat a Boss shaped like a Coney Island hotdog and then, because he's exhausted all other options, he gives you a shot at the level but you die immediately. Having that behind the wheel seems ill-advised, and not just because I'm really, really bad at Cuphead.
Of course, the feature won't be available whilst the car is driving and is intended for a bit of fun whilst you're parked and waiting for to pick somebody up or what have you. I do, however, feel that there's only so much tech that should be inside one's car at any one time.
Hey Elon, maybe you should put your attention into something with a good steering wheel that doesn't fly out the window whilst you're driving!
