Cool! Elon tweeted that Atari games will be coming to car screens in about 4 weeks.
Being able to play Pole Position with the steering wheel, will be super cool. But I am still much more interested in better EAP and eventually FSD.
Looks like there are around 2600 to choose from. LOL!

This is amazing...the first I have heard of it...Enduro is the best old school racing game hands down on Atari !!! Pong anyone???
Agreed that these seem "cool", but at this point, Tesla should be focusing squashing bugs and implementing features that customers have been asking for. I doubt that the engineers had lots of spare cycles and had nothing to do but port Atari games to the MCU.
I'm sure that Tesla is broken up into innumerable teams. It's not like one team can just jump in and cover for another. In this case, the Easter Egg Team has been working on a project and it is being released. This is (and should be) unrelated to and won't affect the progress of (or lack thereof) the EAP or FSD teams.
So..ive been thinking about this. Is the steering wheel capable via software to disengage from turning the wheels? So either with the car in park, you can turn the wheel for the video game and the wheels stay stationary, OR. when parked and turning the wheel for the video game, the actual wheels of your car turn and you mark up your driveway..garage..wear down the rubber... ?
How the heck does that work? Last I checked the steering wheel was connect to this pesky steering rack. Do you really want to be beating on that hardware while playing Pole Position?
You know... a programmer's a programmer. Pizza and Mountain Dew in... bloated, buggy code out.
Those Model 3 multi-functional scroll balls on the steering wheel will come in handy.
It gets more fun by the minute:
Elon Musk on Twitter
Yeah? Maximum creativity Elon? I got an app for the MCU, it is called "Spark". It is "Tinder" for Tesla owners to hook up at Superchargers.
My wife will never let me drive the car alone again.
I'm hoping for a Linux Xen protected memory space we can run our own code in. It seems pointless having a 17" apps screen with only two apps. Maybe Yar's Revenge will take a spot in that space.
I wonder if anyone has discovered how much mass storage space is available in these cars. With how cheap SSDs are now, I hope it is significant and not just barely enough to get by.
Well I guess Atari has to do something to offset the complete collapse of their long-standing game series'. Farewell, Rollercoaster Tycoon World!
I would much rather be able to watch video on the screen when parked than play atari games. That would seem much simpler to implement. Anyone else craving this?
So Tesla wants more reasons for people to get distracted while driving? And why the hell is he not focus on releasing EAP which was suppose to be released over a year ago and instead he is doing stupid Easter eggs and ATARI games...
I wonder which games will show up...
And how the controls will work.
Something like "missle command" could work well with just the touch screen.
