Here’s Tesla with a gift you never knew you wanted, or hey, but hey, you know what they say I’m looking for gift of a horse in the mouth). Last Christmas he gave his cars a chance farts and bleats like goats. Apparently feeling more generous this year, Tesla decided to do it everyone a function was needed to turn their cars into machines for light exhibitions.
As part of the latest holiday news 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 emission, which can take up to five minutes, users must download xLights, free open source software. After completing their light emission in xLights, users can put do it on USB and transfer to their car.
They can even take light emissions from other creators, said the car manufacturer ua blog announcing the function.
The Light Show works with Tesla Model S and Model X 2021 cars, as well as with any Model 3 or Model Y. However, you don’t have to own Tesla car to use the function of light show or xLights, the company explained, although it is he did not specify which other vehicles could use 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 function in action. Fortunately, Tesla has teamed up with Santa – or maybe CEO Elon Musk in a Santa Claus suit – to be an example on Instagram.
It is not entirely clear whether Santa Claus is in the Musk video, although many Instagram users thought he was. Although it would be in the style for Musk to do that, I doubt if he dances so well. Plus, this looks 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 included new games such as 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, although this feature is available to everyone, it doesn’t seem like anyone could do a light show. Software Getting Started Guide GitHub it is a long page and a page. Of course, the function is good and all, but I don’t know if I want to spend hours of my life trying to do 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.
