Real Life Mario Kart Includes Weapons, Items, Speed Boosts (VIDEO)

There have been attempts to make Mario Kart into real life before - some better than others.

But none of them have ever come this close.

A team of electronics fans and enthusiasts have built a real world Mario Kart track which includes power-ups, weapons, speed boosts, and pretty much everything from the game except the plumber himself.

The project was put together by Waterloo Labs, who spent weeks designing the RFID-based system.

The full details about how they did it are written up at their website. Take a look at the results, above.
