Tesla Is Now Letting Drivers Play Video Games While the Car Is Moving

Tesla is allowing drivers — yes, the person behind the wheel who is ideally preoccupied with tasks such as “steering” — to play video games on its vehicles’ massive console touchscreens while driving.

“I only did it for like five seconds and then turned it off,” Tesla owner Vince Patton told The New York Times. “I’m astonished. To me, it just seems inherently dangerous.”

The feature has reportedly been available for some time. Given that the company is already facing fierce scrutiny for rolling out its still unfinished Full Self-Driving beta to customers, it’s not exactly a good look.
