I spotted this image on G+, with the obligatory chides of being Darwin Award-worthy dumb and the obvious “Where’s the monitor?” I did some poking around online and found the source article on Team Xbox. Don’t worry, one doesn’t drive and game. This is for park and play only. It’s a Suzuki auto show concept car/geek playpen.

So, where is the display? It’s projected onto the inside of the auto-deplolyable hood. There are also deployable screens (and wireless controllers) for backseat passengers, and even a 30-inch rear projection display in the hatchback for outside gamers. A whole new level of kids playing in the car.
