Recently, we learned of a Tesla Easter egg that turns the Autopilot display into something similar to Mario Kart’s kaleidoscopic Rainbow Road track. Chief Elon Musk promised that better time seemingly insignificant details were in store, and it appears that Tesla owners have discovered one of them.
Electrek cautioned us to a video posted by Tesla proprietor Kevin Schreiber, who transformed his electric charging port into a veritable rainbow by pressing the catch on the charge handle 10 times while the auto is bolted and charging. As you can see in the video underneath, it ain’t for the weak of eye – especially if the sight of quickly shifting colors screws with your head.
Evidently this Easter egg isn’t stacked into each Model S and Model X out and about. It may just work on the most late models, as owners of more established cars are reporting that they can’t get the secret to work. In any case, considering that it is so easy to enact, it won’t hurt to see on the off chance that this trap works on your Tesla.
