Mercedes Benz makes the world’s most expensive game console that runs SuperTuxKart

Recommended Posts

Here is a gameplay video:

 

I wonder if this will lead to the police stopping to ask children/teenagers playing SuperTuxKart on their parents’ game consoles questions about whether they are operating a vehicle.

 

I also wonder how console sales will go for them. I do not see this outselling the Nintendo Switch, even if it is better for playing racing games.

If the wheel only turns what 15 degrees max when playing, then it's the most expensive not for buying/installing, but because of all the totalled vehicles that it's gonna cause


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I can tell you right now, this will be a problem in the US.

 

If you are in a car, and the key is in the ignition, the police consider you to be operating the vehicle. Regardless of whether or not the vehicle is in motion or you are in the drivers seat.

 

I'm reminded of an Episode of cops where a few gentlemen were arrested for DUI, in (IIRC) Chicago or Detroit, in the winter.

 

Why were they arrested? Because they were sleeping in the car, outside of a nightclub, and had the vehicle running so the heat would work. They were sleeping because they'd had too much to drink, and had the vehicle running because it was fucking winter.

 

And for some reason, that kind of responsible behavior warrants being arrested. I don't know if a judge overturned the arrest and dismissed the charges, but I know I would have.

 

If I had been a cop, I would not have even bothered them. They were clear headed enough to think "I shouldn't drive. I'll sleep this off in the car, I just need the heater going" and that's enough for me.

 

IIRC the car was yellow (for anyone who might have seen the episode)

Newer cars are keyless, so the “key is in the ignition” rule might not be a problem. I am not sure though.

I can see a lawyer/judge easily saying "the keyfob was in the car and the car was running, therefore they were operating a vehicle!".

 

It's about as asinine as "the vehicle was running, and the drunk individual was in the back, sleeping off their drunkeness, therefore they are guilty of DUI!".

 

It seriously pisses me off that this is/was a thing. An individual is sober enough to say "I shouldn't drive, but I do need heat to keep from freezing to death because its FUCKING WINTER" and yet gets arrested anyways.

 

Seriously, any cop or prosecutor dumb enough to move forward with charges in that case deserves to lose their job.

Depends on where they do it. In Belgium you are allowed to drive without a licence on private property. But I imagine it would be different if they played it on a parking spot in the street.

Not pCars 2 and not on the windshield but close enough.

 

He mentioned it felt weird driving with the door opened, that how immersive the whole thing was i guess.

Just more evidence that cars are just computers with wheels attached to them.

Or are computers just Cars without wheels and combustion engines??

Or are cars just boxes on wheels that are really good at weeding drunk people out of the genetic pool? xD
