    This is a video of the Olympic men's 500m speed skating final with Mario Kart Double Dash weapon effects added. It makes me wish every video had Mario Kart weapon effects added. One time my mom asked me clean up the video she took of my little sister's dance recital and I edi... / Continue →

    Remember the Razor Crazy Cart we were all stoked about until we heard the weight limit is 140-pounds and I'm at least 60-pounds (that I'm willing to admit) over that? Well now Razor is releasing an XL version that is strong enough to support weights up to 250-lbs at breakneck ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of dudes playing real life Mario Kart thanks to power ups fitted with RFID tags and modified karts that react appropriately (read: crash) when they read a nearby tag. I don't know about you, but count me in. "Put some clothes on first." But I've do... / Continue →

    This is MIT grad student Charles Guan and his Chibikart, a 26MPH electric go-cart inspired by the ones from everyone's favorite N64 drinking game, Mario Kart. Now I'm not sure what 26MPH feels like when you're that close to the ground with nothing between your face and a wall ... / Continue →

    Nintendo teamed up with West Coast Customs to create two fully functional front-wheel drivereal-life Mario Karts for display at the Los Angeles Auto Show. This is Mario's classic kart here but there's a Luigi bee-mobile or whatever after the jump. Both are impressive and I'd ... / Continue →

    This is Freddie Wong's take on Mario Kart in real life. It's different from Remi Gallard's versions because, instead of relying on being a jackass, Freddie relies on computer effects. Me? I rely on side effects. 'Don't Mix With Alcohol' my ass -- it's the only way daddy get... / Continue →
