In the field after recerating Mario Kart in the real life, After Remi Gaillard, here comes Charles Guan!
A MIT student who has created the Chibikart, an electric mini go-kart that the majority of us will kill for having one.
It is all handmade using 4-wheel direct drive engine and batteries.
According to the Dailymail:
Apart from the video in the MIT hallways you can find another featuring a race between two karts in a Parking Lot.Mario Kart was one of the most popular, addictive computer games of all-time, and brings back many fond memories for gamers of the 1990s.
It had a big influence on MIT student Charles Guan, who has build his own Mario Kart from scratch - tearing it down the halls of MIT late at night when no-one is watching.
The Nintendo game, which first appeared on the SNES console in 1992 before leaping over to the Nintendo 64, inspired Guan - an 'electromechanical hobbyist' - to build his project as a test of his engineering skills and knowledge of mathematics.
