GM Designed a Video Game: Car Hero

This isn’t a joke, but it’s not entirely real, either. General Motors conceptualized a game called Car Hero as their entry in the 2009 Los Angeles Car Show Design Challenge. The result is surprisingly…cool [via Side Questing]:


The twist with Car Hero is that it combines a driving game with actual driving. While you try to wrap your mind around the concept of this game happening as you drive, remember that this sort of thing will seem normal in the future, when we’ll all be mind-texting with our pets while playing our HoloStation 3600.

Frankly, GM’s vision of the future disappoints us. Car-based video games are neat and all, but where are the flying cars??
