Sony drives car onto stage using PlayStation 5 controller

CES 2024 in Las Vegas just saw Sony blur the lines between gaming and real-life driving.

Sony Honda Mobility president and COO, Izumi Kawanishi, drove the company’s Afeela EV on stage remotely.

And he used a PlayStation 5 controller to do it – specifically the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.

The car’s yoke steering wheel turned without anyone sitting behind it.

Other vehicular innovation at CES 2024 included a stunning flying supercar.

While the executive stated that the demo was only for the show, it’s taking the idea of toy remote control cars and applying them to adult life.

You can see the Afeela EV being driven remotely in the incredible video below:
