It's Real Life Mario Kart, That Works

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Too cool

If any of you know any scientists or engineers, they may tell you on a regular basis that they really make the world go round, bringing us the cool gadgets that we take for granted. "Yeah, whatever", we may say in response, but our perspective in Nintendo Life Towers has just become a whole lot more appreciative. Some clever people from Waterloo Labs in Texas have found a way to produce real-life Mario Kart. Not a phony parody, but karting with functioning items.

Using micro-processors and sensors bolted onto go-karts, these clever people have recreated the classic items — and their effects — in real life. On a scale of one to awesome, this definitely qualifies for the top rate. We'll let the video itself do the rest of the talking.

Just think when it gets to the point where they can make holographic cubes for them to run into and a halo gram of the item will be at the front of your kart
