Yeah, the ScanGauge as a "Game Gauge". The car-human/bio-cyber feedback loop can't be beat.

I think this would be a trivial requirement for cars today. All the data is "in there" in the ECU/PCM, so why not make it available to the driver? It doesn't have to be a fancy/schmancy big LCD screen. It could be a small 2"x2" LCD (or LED) fuel economy status gauge. I forget the article, but I know that one of the big-3 is mulling over making it standard on all their vehicles.
