BMW controls casual games on its large in-car screen via QR codes and your phone
BMW is the latest carmaker to experiment with gaming on vehicle infotainment displays while you’re charging or otherwise waiting in your vehicle. AirConsole, a party gaming service that often plays on platforms like as Android TV or PC, will be added to automobiles equipped with the curved infotainment display at the core of its iDrive 8 system.
AirConsole streams games over the internet, with smartphone controls replacing specialized controllers. The PC version’s catalog of over 180 games isn’t exactly huge hitters, such as GoKart Go Air, Mega Monster Party, and Let’s Cook Together, which seem to be highly influenced by Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Party, and Cooking Mama, respectively. There are no identifiable games, even those that employ cellphones, such as Jackbox games.
