What if you try turning the Cyber Truck on and off?

You have been driving on autopilot for twenty (20) minutes when suddenly your coffee spills; You immediately command the vehicle to stop the vehicle to clean the panel and your new shorts. Once the command is executed and at a speed of 100 miles per hour (M/H), the vehicle does not respond until seconds later.


This scenario is reported by dozens of Tesla users daily. Elon Musk was forced to speak out on the matter and reported a new model of intelligent vehicle.

A good number of Tesla owners have reported such a problem, some even at quite low speeds, like 5 mph!


Drivers have described strange sensations on the steering wheel just before or after these incidents, and many have seen a warning message about reduced steering assistance on the dashboard at the same time. Imagine how disconcerting that must be!


On the other hand, a rather worrying situation was discovered with Mercedes-Benz vehicles. There was a leak of confidential information, and that's not something you want to find out about if you own one of these cars!

This year, an access token on GitHub was accessible to anyone for several months, meaning that important data, such as Mercedes' source code, could have been accessed by unauthorized personnel. This raises some serious questions about data security in the automotive industry.


However, the trend on social networks was unleashed by a prankster who decided to get on the train of madness: The scandal over a 25-second video titled "Apple Vision Pro + Tesla Self Driving" began to spread on social networks just when it was the comments intensified. In the video, we see an individual in the driver's seat with a virtual reality viewer, while the cyber truck (Cybertruck) moves along the highway apparently in autonomous mode (yes, that very controversial Tesla topic).


The driver would have his hands raised and fingers moving in front of the windshield as if he were operating a virtual desktop.


Things get even more effusive when halfway through the video a police car appears with its lights flashing, implying that our protagonist was 'arrested' for using the visor while driving!
