I’m on record as a big fan of those on-court and on-ice projection systems proliferating throughout our nation’s arenas, but Tampa might have achieved apotheosis.
Many of us spent a good portion of our college years battling it out in Mario Kart. Those carefully-honed skills aren’t exactly a big seller on your resume, unless you happen to be one of four Colorado State University students who created a real-life version of the game, complete with weapons and power-ups.
Oh, what a lovely day.
Ever since Nintendo made its surprise announcement that Mario Kart 8 was getting a new high-speed difficulty level, excited fans have had one question: what would it do to Mario Kart?
Those pesky laws of the universe make it all but impossible to recreate the tracks, vehicles, and stunts you can perform in Mario Kart 8 in real life, but that didn't stop JAKKS Pacific from trying. The company's remote control version of Mario and his kart looks exactly like its video game counterpart, right down to…
A collaboration between 6kyubi6, 74louloute and fujiia celebrates the awesomeness that is Mario Kart. Even though this game makes you hate your friends, these pals somehow made this build come together. All of my favorite characters are represented and nearly all of the weapons of destruction were built.
Earlier this year, YouTube announced plans to support videos running at 60 frames-per-second—plans that would make a huge difference for footage of video games. Today, the video network has finally started rolling out the new service, and you can already tell that this is going to be wonderful.
"I don't want to go to bed at night thinking I've ruined thousands of people's fun," one of the two men who's cracked open the code for the Wii U's biggest game told me this week. I was confused.
Everyone who's played Mario Kart secretly wants it to be real. Sure, flinging turtle shells and banana peels at other cars will probably get you arrested, and while I once did go karting after eating some shrooms, I can't say it helped my speed. So I was exited to try real-life Mario Kart at SXSW. Here's what it's…
After two weeks of hearing about sports you've never cared to follow in the past four years, you've probably wondered why the short track skaters don't just ... you know ... throw a blue shell at the end? And here we can see what would happen if they did.
Mario Kart just might be the funnest video game in the entire world. Only the soulless can't find enjoyment in go kart racing with super fast Mushroom speed, red shells and Nintendo characters. So you can imagine the even more ridiculous levels of fun you can have if you turned Mario Kart into a real life race against…
A self-described electromechanical hobbyist and MIT student named Charles Guan is the mastermind behind the Chibikart, a motorized Mario Kart-like vehicle built from scratch.
Anyone who's played Mario Kart knows the terror of seeing these shells bearing down in their rear-view (not the blue! Anything but that!). Now these leader-seeking missiles are coming to the real world in the form of adorable R/C racers.
Vail Christian High School is taking this texting-while-driving thing seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they've brought in one of the most realistic driving simulators ever conceived to teach kids the dangers of this practice.
For those who don't like the floating steering wheel of Mario Kart Wii (because it lacks the realism of driving around a banana-spewing bulletmobile), this wheel mount by JTT isn't a bad solution. Using a suction cup to attach the wheel to any flat surface, the top tilts 120-degrees so you can compete old-lady or…
If you haven't quite earned a license for Mario Kart driving, you can bypass the tacky training wheel and head straight for a realistic, grown-up solution. Blazepro is now offering a beefed-up racing wheel for the Wii that promises better driving accuracy. And, since the base can be attached to any desktop for better…
