Nope it isn’t a video game. It is real life! General Motors unveiled that The Performance Data Recorder will be available on the 2015 Corvette Stingray, the automaker said, calling it an “industry first.” “The fully integrated system enables users to record high-definition video, with telemetry overlays, of their driving experiences on and off the track,” GM said.
The system consists of a video camera mounted on the dashboard, a GPS receiver and the car’s computer. A 32 gigabyte card inserted near the glove box can hold about 13 hours of driving data. Married men who are not tech savvy better not tip out on their wives. They will have proof! Anyhow, It was designed by the company that works with the Corvette Racing team. I can’t wait to test drive it. GM has not said how much the system will cost. This is taking gamification to another level!
