According to Oliver Helmer, head of Mini Design, you can connect your games console and project your gameplay from the front of the vehicle.
With the “Experience Mode” that comes installed on this car, Pikachu takes over the main display when the vehicle’s turned on, while digital lightning bolts travel across the entire dashboard.
