Why screw around with some flimsy racing wheel when you can use your own car to control the game? This concept has been utilized before, but a new system called Park to Play could make it possible for the average consumer to bring the experience home. In addition to using the steering wheel and the pedals, opening and closing the doors and using the headlights can also function as controls within the game.
You can even use your car to play non-racing games (although I have no idea why you would want to). Unfortunately, there is no word on when this technology might be available for purchase, but the thought of my shitty Saturn doing burnouts and going over 100mph is intriguing —even if it is virtual.
