Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit's already earned the titles of 'most unique take on a Mario Kart title' and 'game most likely to aggravate your cat', but now it's going for the honour of being the most likely game to help you out in a tight spot at home, too.
As you may already know, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit's karts – both Mario and Luigi sets are available – include a camera that's used to display your home's surroundings on your Switch or TV as you race. It's a pretty neat package all in all, and racing around circuits made up of obstacles like your sofa, TV unit and ever-moving children certainly makes for some interesting gameplay.
That camera isn't just useful for racing, though, as Twitter user @knny demonstrates below. As you can see, the trusty duo of Mario Kart and Switch console can double up as a nifty camera system, perfect for exploring areas inaccessible to people larger than a toy car (so everyone, then).
Somebody show this to Miyamoto – there's a game idea in here somewhere.
Have you picked up a Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit set? Do you get much use out of it? Let us know in the comments.
Is it any good as a DUI companion?

Direct-I from Star Fox Zero?
@MS7000 next thing you know, they're gonna be producing a drone to make an AR Star Fox game. It's just the gimmick the series needs!
Or you could use a cheap endoscope camera, and not trash your expensive gametoy.
Example from amazon, but there are even cheaper ones:
Good thing it didn't get disconnected mid-way!
I drove mine behind the couch to find all my kids socks they were missing.
gonna whip out the luigi kart to find my missing wii u adapter
@sanderev Gotta let the twitter randos have their 15 minutes. 😋
Future click bait link: “You won’t believe what these Mario Kart cameras captured!”
I think the ingame music changed to that of mario level 1-2 while doing that exploration
What a fantastic idea! I'll keep that in the old think tank!!
@MS7000 Exactly what came to my mind as well.
@sanderev agreed, but probably he needed it fast and hr didn't have one in hand. It was faster
good thing they tied a rope to the kart. tbh the distance to get good reception is very short so don’t know how far it could’ve traveled before losing it. also, all the debris down there is not exactly a friendly path for the kart as it can easily get stuck…
all this article has done is inspire me to make another track at home this weekend.
Back in the days when one banana cost a Nickel, we used hamsters on a leash for stuff like this.
@sportvater In those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. "Gimme five bees for a quarter," you'd say.
