Real Life Mario Kart

I’ll bet you a starman and two red Koopa shells that this is the coolest thing you’ll see all day. The geniuses at Austin’s Waterloo Labs created a real life Mario Kart using RFID tags embedded in “power-ups” to control the  steering gas and brakes of the cars they are driving.

Where can I sign up to play? This. Is. Awesome.

Waterloo Labs has been doing this kind of stuff for years, and I’m a big fan of theirs. Check out a couple of their previous projects: Controlling Mario Brothers with your eyes, or a first-person shooter that works with real guns.
