I’m the best player of Mario Kart in the world despite what all my lying friends say. My dream would be to play Mario Kart for real, but since heat-seeking turtle shells are only a dream, the next best thing is to use Oculus Rift to make that my reality.

In the video above, you can see what Oculus Rift was really made for. You can be instantly transported into the Mario Kart universe and be defeated by me. It’s still a work-in-progress, but seems well worth the effort.

Everything in the video is classic Mario Kart. It has the music, the sound effects, and my want to play it until I get yelled at to go outside and react to nature. This can’t come out soon enough, and I will be first in line to buy it.
