Nissan designs Xbox-integrated auto

Concept two-seater will allow passengers to play racing games while really on the road.


It looks like Peugeot designers aren't the only car engineers who love games. Next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Nissan will show off a concept car that integrates an Xbox into its dashboard. Not only will the car cater to gamers, but it also will be set up to let passengers play games like Need For Speed Most Wanted as though they were really behind the wheel. According to Wired, the Nissan Urge "has two seats that are modeled to [look] like a cockpit, so the passenger will get to pretend he's driving [via an Xbox] while the driver hopefully isn't too distracted to do the real thing." The car will go on display January 9, 2006.
