Nintendo builds life-sized Mario karts to promote new game
In the lead-up to the release of Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS handheld gaming system, game-maker Nintendo had West Coast Customs create life-sized versions of the famously battle ready cartoon karts for the LA Auto Show, to give onlookers a sense of what Mario Kart is like in 3D.
The result is too cool to ignore, for geeks like us anyway. Mario Kart 7 will be available in stores on Dec. 7.
