A Very Well-Engineered Waste Of Time

08.10.10 8 years ago 4 Comments

Do you remember the classic racing video game Wipeout? Me neither, but these German kids do, and they built what might be the greatest carboard homage to pixelated playtime ever: a scale cardboard replica of the entire racetrack. Why is it that the Germans never seem to have enough to do with themselves?

But if the replica isn’t impressive enough, there’s the cabinet that serves as the cockpit that controls a camera equipped car through the course. Apparently Germans have no computers to design these games for themselves, but instead must develop these concepts on a real life scale. I hope they do Dig Dug next. That seems like a better conduit for Darwinism to happen. –via Jalopnik.
