Here’s Tesla with a gift you never knew you wanted (or didn’t really want, but hey, you know what they say watching gift horse in the mouth). Last Christmas she gave her cars a chance farts and bleats like goats. Apparently he felt more generous this year, Tesla decided that everyone it needed a feature to turn its cars into light show machines.
As part of his latest holiday update released on Christmas Eve, Tesla debuted the “Tesla Light Show”, which allows users to create their own light shows with any music of their choice. To create a light show, which can take up to five minutes, users must download xLights, free open source software. After completing their light show in xLights, users can put do it on USB and transfer to their car.
I can even download light shows from other creators, said the car manufacturer ua blog announcing the feature.
The Light Show works with the 2021 Tesla Model S and Model X cars, as well as with any Model 3 or Model Y. However, you don’t have to own Tesla car to use the features of light show or xLights, the company explained, although he did not specify which other vehicles could take advantage of this feature.
Since I wasn’t at the concert, which is usually the only place I see light shows, for a time due to the pandemic it was a little difficult to imagine this feature in action. Fortunately, Tesla has teamed up with Santa Claus – or maybe CEO Elon Musk in a Santa Claus suit – to be an example on Instagram.
It’s not entirely clear if Santa is in the Musk video, although a lot of Instagram users seemed to think he was. Although it would be in Musco’s style to do so, I doubt he dances so well. Plus, it seems like something I’d happily share on Twitter, my favorite social media platform, but it was there is no publication at the time of publication of this article.
In addition to the Light Show, Tesla’s holiday software update also included new games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Sudoku, and a multiplayer version of The Battle of Polytopia. The company also added TikTok to the car’s central touch screen and debuted the Boombox Megaphone, a feature that allows Tesla owners to project their voice using the car’s external speaker, among many others.
Honestly, while this feature is available to everyone, it doesn’t seem like just anyone could create a light show. Software Getting Started Guide GitHub it is a long page and a page. Of course, the feature is beautiful and all, but I don’t know if I want to spend hours of my life trying to make a five-minute light show.
Regardless, I’m sure there are others who might be thrilled with this and won’t mind putting in the time and effort. To these people: Merry Christmas.
