Mario Kart power-ups appear in bike lanes


1:00 AM on 08.23.2010



I just moved to Portland, Oregon a week ago and it became quickly apparent that this was going to be my kind of town. Between the amazing food and the charming people, it's already feeling like home. And then I hear about something like this and my attachment goes to a whole new level.

It seems that someone has taken it upon themselves to place Mario Kart power-ups in the bike lanes along one of the streets east of the river. Speed boosts, banana peels and Starman all lay in the path of unwitting cyclists. As noted in the report above, we don't know where they came from and, frankly, I don't give a damn. This is awesome.

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more
