Mario Kart RC game brings the Mushroom Cup to your living room

In addition to the usual remote controlled shenanigans, these guys have the ability to "shoot" virtual shells and bananas at other cars; power-ups are indicated on the controller via LEDs; and cars contain infrared sensors so you know when you've been hit with a weapon (which causes you to rumble and slow down) Cars are available from Amazon Japan to the tune of ¥2,730 (around $30) each.


These look cool, better than the slot car version linked in the post. If there were more Nintendo enthusiasts in our house I might get them. But its just me and a 1 player race w/o a computer opponent is no fun. I like the power up features, thats really cool.

This should be surprising, but...

Neat to see it actually made, though. Creative idea, and not terribly expensive.

That is really cool!

Though it seems like there would be some potential for even more shenanigans with the infrared...

That was neat, but it was kinda painful to watch such bad driving. Have these people ever used an RC car before?

Even if they could, they'd just end up being taken out by a barrage of weapons and come in last place anyway. :X

How does it decide when you get a weapon exactly? Do you simply start with them, or is it random? Pretty awesome concept, surprise it took this long for them to come up with it xD
