It really feels like Nintendo Labo just came and went with little more than a whimper.
Although Nintendo created a Vehicle Kit to help make your races in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe feel just a tad more realistic, YouTube creator DanCreator / Cardboard Crafts has taken the concept further by creating a life-size kart made out of cardboard. The coolest part? By using rubber rings and utilising a bit of suction, he's even made the kart 'hover' across the ground, just like the anti-grav sections in the game!
In addition, he's also created a full-sized Mario Kart 8 themed arcade machine, which essentially looks like a souped-up version of the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit, complete with a chair with built-in speakers, lights, and an awesome wheel/pedal combo.
It's certainly a novel way to enjoy the recently released Booster Course Pass Wave 1 courses, that's for sure!

Super jealous of that cabinet! I want what this man has, without putting in any of the work.
Cool, but what if the guy behind you has a fire flower?
And people still think Nintendo Labos a joke. Cardboards the greatest material on earth people!
I wasn’t going to watch the whole thing… but then it was pretty amazing. Where does one find such precisely cut cardboard? And how do you keep the pedal from drifting?
Super cool. Super jealous
No matter how often I see people doing something like this I can't help but admire them showing such a strong passion for their hobby.
A cute little Mario hat on that gerbil would have been the cherry on top of the sundae.
I need this as a deluxe labo kit please and thank you.
As the daughter of a box maker this speaks to me.
Now this is podracing!
Hope Nintendo doesn’t Cease and Desist this!
Nintendo is on its way to shut this down.
That looks like one hella expensive Labo kit.
Well, I've been wasting my life. And here I have a whole room filled with cardboard boxes that I've been too lazy to break down and/or build something with.
Lovely stuff. And that hamster really loves lava, lol.
