    Because kids get all the coolest stuff, this is the Super Mario Kart Ride On Vehicle availablefor $200 from Toys R Us (and probably other places). It's an electric powered Mario Kart for kids (up to 70-lbs, or one of my testicles) with a top speed of 2.5MPH that plays sound ef... / Continue →

    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 →

    Because why would anybody want to release products in time for people to buy them for Christmas presents, Firebox has these life-size 'invigorating energy citrus' scented Super Nintendo and Game Boy cartridge soaps available for pre-order. Super Nintendo cartridges cost $21 ap... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road spotted in real life. It looks way less spacey than I would have imagined. It's actually disappointing. It's real though, and located on Interstate 86 in Idaho. Weird, I never though the exit to Rainbow Road would be in Idaho. Of... / 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 →

    This is the follow up to Remi Gaillard's first real-life Mario Kart video from 2008. Wow, has it really been that long? It seems like only yesterday I was stuffing my pockets with airplane bottles for a trip to the doctor (it was yesterday is the thing). Damn yeah I like to ... / Continue →

    Like this! Granted it's not a new concept because I remember my freshman year of college ('99) my roommate and I used to play Counter-Strike on opposing clans and we'd each hang a bedsheet over the side of our loft so the other person couldn't see you. Which, fun fact: also... / Continue →

    Some unknown Mario Kart lover went and spraypainted symbols from the game in one of Portland's bike lanes. Why? Cause that shit's poppin', son! Almost makes me want to get a bicycle. Ooooor just drive my car in the bike lane. Look out Lance, daddy's got a blue shell! Hit ... / Continue →

    Fed up with Mario constantly tossing his brethren around like expendable weapons, Koopa takes a stand and gives the plumber a taste of his own medicine. And I'm not talking mushrooms either, although I did eat some at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and watched a bus turn into... / Continue →

    Remember skilled sculptor (and handsome Geekologie Reader) Kalapusa's Piranha Plant garden sculpture? Well now the man behind the pipe-dwelling plant is back at it, this time with a trio of Christmas ornaments. In case you can't tell what they are because you don't know anyth... / Continue →

    This is a pretty awesome trailer for Mario Kart: The Movie. Obviously, the movie isn't actually real but the trailer is 3:40 long so you get to see all the would-be good parts anyway. I especially liked the part at the end where Princess gets all nekkid and dancy at the finis... / Continue →

    This is a video of a go-kart with a Honda CBR 900RR motorcycle engine in it. It's the closest thing to a real Mario Kart I've ever seen. I love how the guy driving doesn't even bother wearing a helmet. Because, honestly, heads are overrated, especially when you're drifting i... / Continue →

    Donald Kenny gets bored at work. REALLY bored. So what does he do? Sneak out the back? Play video games? Surf Facebook incessantly like a normal person? No. He makes Mario Kart sculptures using office supplies. As you can see, this is a paper clip and wire Mario. Good ... / Continue →

    As a guy who actually witnessed a hit and run last night, I've got to admit: I should drive more carefully. Now there's probably a picture of my Wii Mii out there posted next to the carcass. Wonderful. No, really, that is a wanted poster and that is a Mii on it, and that mad... / Continue →

    First a real world Mario Kart video yesterday, and now a Mario Kart inspired emo song by Youtube user blinktwice4y. It's actually really freaking good. And it may or may not have made me cry. But if it did, it's only because I used to have that same Dirt Devil. :'( Youtube... / Continue →
