Some clever guys have managed to modify an exercise bike to be able to control the original Super Nes' Mario Kart.

Do you love Mario Kart? Did you ever play it riding an exercise bike? Sure you didn't but now you can take a look at how it would be!.

A Github project with and old SNES controller, an ArDuino board and an excercise bike made the magic converting the dust-collector bike into a real cool retro-controller.



Rigged an exercise bike up to an old Super Nintendo controller using An Arduino microcontroller, some sensors/switches and some transistors.

Peddling at a certain rate holds down the A button to accelerate, left and right are buttons on the handlebars and there is a red button in the middle of the handlebars for using special items.

I have another video I'll upload soon which better describes the bike controller.


You have all the info about this exciting project in the link below.
