Snake, pong, tetris… For those of us who had the joy of owning a Nokia 3310 or spending afternoons at the arcade, these games were an important part of our childhood recreational activities. Most of us have moved on to bigger (but not necessarily better) things – except for someone involved in the manufacturing of the GAZelle Next, a Russian heavy duty van.
Easter eggs are a common (and awesome) occurrence in movies, television series and video games. Game developers take pride in hiding interesting, funny or personal tidbits for players to find, and it looks like someone at Russian automotive giant Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod (GAZ) thought they’d join the party.
While having a distracting game right under the driver’s nose may not help the vehicle’s safety rating, it’s definitely the most interesting feature to be included in a car’s onboard system that we’ve seen! Maybe one day when self-driving cars mean we don’t have to drive ourselves places, Snake and Pong will make a comeback too?
