You Can Play Mario Kart Using A Real Mercedes-Benz As Your Controller

Technology scares the shit out of me.

I literally have spent the last 15 minutes trying to figure out if this is just some simulator ride at an auto show, or do these new Mercedes-Benz CLA Class sedans actually let you play Mario Kart using the car as a controller? Believe it or not, it’s the latter.

But, not only does the new CLA let you play Mario Kart using the steering wheel and pedals to control your character, the seat belt tightens when you crash, the A/C unit blows out air as your race, and the interior lights sync up with real-time gameplay. The game itself is actually the open-source SuperTuxKart, as opposed to an official version of Mario Kart, but it’s more or less the same shit.
