Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently proposed the idea of including titular games like Minecraft and Pokemon Go in the company’s cars.
The billionaire is back at it with his attention-grabbing tweets!
Innovative yet bizarre
At this point, Elon Musk can be considered as a Twitter celebrity in his own right.
Famous and known for his borderline eyebrow-raising tweets, Musk’s sass and insight was then again proven when he expressed his innovative idea:
“Minecraft has amazing legs”
He further delved into this vague yet interesting insight, suggesting a collab between Minecraft, Pokemon Go in Tesla cars:
“Anyone think they can get a good multiplayer Minecraft working on Teslas? Or maybe create a game that interacts virtually with reality like Pokémon Go while driving safely? Like a complex version of Pac-man or Mario Kart?”
Many weren’t expecting the idea of a collaboration between these games and Teslas— but then again, Elon never fails to create surprising decisions by the day.
The idea traces way back
The bizarre idea of incorporating a Minecraft game in Tesla cars wasn’t anything new, though.
In fact, it was first discussed by the tech billionaire in January where he held a poll to ask his active followers if they would like the video game “The Witcher” to be installed in the company’s famed cars.
Surprisingly, more than 85% were down to the idea and said “yes (tosses coin).”
“Want to play The Witcher game on your Tesla? (you can already watch the show on Tesla Netflix theater)”
Someone in the replies suggested the idea of including Minecraft to the roster, while they were at it.
“That would be great. And that would even be greater if I could play MINECRAFT in my tesla (and my kid would love it too)”
Elon Musk agreed to the idea, calling the game a “v important” consideration.
Trouble in Tesla paradise
Some of Musk’s latest tweets have put the company in trouble with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
A recent tweet saying that Tesla stock was “too high” left the electric vehicle company’s market value decreasing by $14 billion in a short span of time.
It also cost Elon about $3 billion off his own stake in the company.
However, this wasn’t the first tweet that got him in IRL trouble. Back in August 2018, he explicitly posted sensitive information on Tesla “going private, funding secured” at $420 a share.
This tweet cost him his role as the company’s chairman.
It also backfired on his company’s standing, as the SEC pressed fraud charges which the company was forced to settle at $40 million in penalties.
The amount was reportedly split between Musk and the company, with him being removed as the chairman of Tesla’s board.
