There’s something fantastically simple about a good old-fashioned racecar game. Mario Kart is one of those Nintendo standards that can never get old. Well… maybe it’s a little dated… which is why the following projects are a must-read. Ready to give a new spin on an old classic?
Build Your Own
One MIT student spent three weeks building a real-life Mario Kart from scratch. He had many of the parts to begin with, but between the motors, batteries, and other materials, this project could set you back almost $2,000. Watch him ride it around and you’ll know it’s worth it.
Hack Your Own
And if you don’t need to literally feel the wind blowing in your hair (and you’re on a budget), this virtual option might be a better fit for you. Rig up an old stationary bike to a Super Nintendo controller with an Arduino microcontroller and other materials and your bike will become the controller. Game and exercise at the same time!blog comments powered by Disqus
