This man claims to run Pokemon Go on Tesla. A Tesla Model S that can supposedly run Pokémon Go might be the nerdiest thing I’ve ever seen.
Ever since Pokémon Go launched, I’ve been trying to imagine a way in which I could use a car to play. Specifically, I imagined playing with the Chevy Cruze. It has 4G LTE Wi-Fi, GPS, an 8-inch touchscreen and a reverse camera.
Since I’m more of a wordsmith than I am a hacker, I left the idea in imagination land.
Imagine my surprise, then, when I discovered that Pink Java’s media editor is claimed to have hacked his Tesla Model S to boot up and run Pokémon Go on his car’s in-dash 17-inch display.

Now, as fun as this is, the claim raises some red flags. The man, referred to only as “Jeff” says he’s declined offers to hack other Teslas because it’s a “trial and error process.” This claim doesn’t really pass the smell test for me.
What’s more, in addition to his Tesla hack, Jeff claims that he once rigged the lights in his home to flash when he received an email. He admits he now cannot figure out how to make it stop. This doesn’t sound like the work of a master hacker, if you ask me.
As if that weren’t enough, Pink Java hasn’t shared any video documentation or other details on how Jeff achieved this automotive technical feat. Given that, as well as his super-annoying house hack, I am guessing this is a hoax.
Regardless, my hat goes off to Jeff and the rest of Pink Java. They’ve at least taken my idea one step further than I dared to. Kudos./ Read More at: http://mashable.com/2016/08/02/tesla-pokemon-go-hack/#3jhOLaoaIqqq/
