It looks like a video game, but is real life.
General Motors unveiled on Sunday a system that pulls together driving performance data with dashcam video -- giving drivers of its flashy Stingray sports car a way to record and share their experience behind the wheel.

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 (GM, Fortune 500) said.
