Sony also announced it recently conducted a 5G remote driving test, whereby a Vision-S on a test course in Germany was driven by an individual in Tokyo using what is clearly a Logitech G29 steering wheel and pedals, over a hyperfast data connection. Practical? Not really, but there’s something charming about a whole ass car being steered by someone thousands of miles away using a budget sim racing kit you could snag at Best Buy for $300.


Sony’s been pragmatic and conservative about the Vision-S every step of the way. I almost feel stupid for taking the company at its word and assuming nothing would come of it; this whole time it’s been developing its EVs like normal production cars. Now we know for a fact that’s the end goal.
