Minecraft is a phenomenon, with an estimated 112 million monthly players. Despite the game launching back in 2011, it’s still evolving and recently added Ray Tracing which looks incredible. 

If you’ve had kids at home during isolation, chances are you’ve seen lots of Minecraft at your house with support for almost any device. 

Well there’s one connected device that doesn’t yet have Minecraft, Teslas. It sounds like that could change with Musk posting that he’s keen to get it working in the car. 

The car already has a decent list of games including Beach Buggy Racing 2, Cuphead and more, but adding a game as popular as Minecraft would be something else.

While games are currently restricted to having the car in Park, Elon has suggested for the first time that he would consider a game while the car is ‘driving safely’. 

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?

The ‘driving’ part of that suggests that we’re talking about humans still driving, not months or years away when the cars are fully autonomous. I’m keen to understand more about how this would work. 

Musk clearly understands the safety concerns with distracted drivers, so I imagine it could use the MarioKart-style powerups, collecting them on your drive by pressing a button on the wheel or indicator stalk, similar to spinning a Pokestop.
