Elon Musk's social media presence, most specifically on Twitter, can be very polarizing, but today's tweets may open up avenues for creators. Today, Musk asked that anyone experienced developers apply to Tesla as the company strikes up game content that integrates the "center touch screen, phone, & car irl."

Musk followed the initial tweet up by asking those game developers to send examples of prior work that exhibit max playability and creativity. When asked he means "Pokemon Go for Tesla" he responded, "something like that, but more of an adults in cars anime vibe." What in the world does that even mean? Maybe we'll learn one day, so stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.

      Gamification in cars would be a terrible thing.

      OR, it would be hilarious.

      Bring it on!

      Like pokemon go? So with autopilot does that mean you just sit in your car playing with your phone while it drives you around and collects more meaningless digital things for you?

      What kind of achievements will they add?
      Not a BMW - use a turn signal
      Hold the Phone - stop at a red light
      Danger Zone - drive to and from work with a low fuel warning

        That should be low battery warning instead of fuel warning
