SAN FRANCISCO: After creating chaos by performing exceedingly well on Tesla stock last week, during the time of a pandemic, Elon Musk was back one more time with his attention-grabbing tweets, saying it's a good idea to put in games like Minecraft and Pokemon in his Tesla cars.
"Minecraft has amazing legs," Tesla CEO tweeted on Sunday.
"Anyone think they will get a good multiplayer Minecraft functioning on Teslas? or even create a game that interacts virtually with reality like Pokémon Go while driving safely? sort of a complex version of Pac-man or Mario Kart?" he added.
Musk''s idea to place Minecraft in Tesla cars was first discussed in January this year after he tweeted a poll, asking his followers if they might just like the Witcher computer game to be installed in Tesla.
One follower said it'd "even be greater if I could play Minecraft in my tesla (and my kid would like it too)."
"Agreed, v[ery] important," Musk responded.
Some of the billionaire''s latest tweets have put him in trouble with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
A tweet last week saying that Tesla stock was "too high" left Tesla''s market price go down by $14 billion in hours. It also knocked $3 billion off Musk''s own stake in the electric car-maker.
His earlier notorious tweet in August 2018 when he posted about Tesla "going private, funding secured" at $420 a share, cost him his role as Tesla Chairman.
The August 2018 tweet resulted in Musk and Tesla reaching a settlement of fraud charges with the SEC. The settlement included $40 million in penalties, split equally between the corporate and Musk, and therefore the removal of Musk as chairman of the Tesla board.
