Yes, you are reading it right: the VW Scirocco has been used as a video game controller. Awesome!
Instead of raiding the local home-supply store for materials, the crew managed to talk a brand-new 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco into pretending that it’s a video game controller by hooking up the OBD port to a computer. As the nut in the driver’s seat wrenches on the steering wheel and operates the pedals, the system translates the maneuvers into ones and zeros. Throw in a projector good enough to cover your garage door, add a decent sound system, and you’ve officially got the most awesome driving simulator on the block – no shaking or baking required.
