What If You Could Play Video Games Using Your Car As A Controller?


Driving and playing video games are great forms of escapism. So why not combine them?

There are plenty of people that enjoy driving and playing video games. So one man decided to combine these two hobbies by modifying a Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet to play a first person shooter on the center console screen. Youtuber vexal has even provided a step by step video guide on how to make this possible, should you have the desire to play Doom while driving. To make it work, all you have to do is insert a flash drive containing a file with the car's VIN number into the media USB port.

This will bring up the computer system's debug mode. Then you simply insert the original game disc, and you're good to go. The best part is that the game is controlled using the car's inputs.

Character movement is controlled by accelerating and moving the steering wheel left and right, and you can select weapons using the gear shifter. How do you fire the gun to take out those despicable demons, you may ask? By honking the horn, of course. We can't see game companies catching on to this method somehow, but there must be someone out there wanting to play video games from the comfort of their car. Also, we don't advise trying this yourself. Not only would it be dangerous and distracting, it won't work, despite how convincing the straight-faced YouTuber's video may look. Sorry to disappoint you.
