    While trying to get past the bug mentioned above, on the iPad, I was repeatedly tapping on the Piano Black option, I think, when the design studio threw this at me!

    After that, the whole page froze up and I had to refresh - no "bonus views" in sight at that point but, there's an Easter Egg in there for anyone wanting to dive deeper! I couldn't get to this dialog again after that one time :(

    I haven't been able to get this to work on a computer, but on an ipad you go into the configurator (select a model first) then perform these swipes:

    UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT then tap on the screen 3 times. For the Model S it "unlocks" the street view which is currently broken because the image won't load. If you do it on the roadster's design studio, you get 3 additional view buttons added to the view list (the 3 'real world' views).

    How the heck did you figure that out. Just playing with it or looking at the code?

    Awesome. Isn't it amazing how memory works? That's some not very useful piece of information I learned maybe 20 years ago and will probably never forget. Pretty funny.

    Does the Konami code work on other tablets, e.g. Android, PC tablet with Windows 7 or Windows 8 Consumer Preview? Anyone figure out how to enter the Konami code with a keyboard?

    Not sure but it sure does give you 30 lives in Contra!

    Up - Up - Down - Down - Left - Right - Left - Righte - B - A - [Select] - Start

    If you want 2 player you need the select.

    Yes, on a computer put your caps lock on. Use the arrow keys to do the up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right sequence, then hit the B and A keys (keep caps lock on, won't work if you hit shift to do it) then press enter.

    *edit* looks like it'll recognize it without caps lock as well

    Well done, man! :) How did you connect the dots though to identify the apparently well-known sequence? I haven't looked at it but, is it obvious in the JavaScript?!

    As if I didn't love Tesla enough -- using the Contra cheat code is AWESOME! Didn't it also give you unlimited guns or ammo or something? It's been over 20 years since I used that. Thanks for the memories, Telsa and El!

    Yeah but... I can get the alert that the bonus views are unlocked, but has anyone actually seen any bonus views?

    Or cheat by going into your JS debugger and typing:

    TC.enableAllViewButtons();

    Correct. For the Model S it attempts to bring back the outdoors view:
