Redditor justicefreedomlogic shared these amazing photos of two guys, dressed from head to toe as video game characters Mario and Luigi, cruising down a Japanese freeway in actual (matching) go-carts.
Yep, it’s real life Mario Kart, because Japan might actually cease to exist if something awesomely weird doesn’t happen there at least a few times a day…

“This stop motion tribute to my 2 favorite old school arcade games is based on actual recorded game footage. The recordings were printed out, one frame at a time, and transferred by hand to various walls around my office floor using thousands of Post-It Notes. The process consumed weekends and holidays for the past 11 months. Changing background scenery was masked out and replaced with 1 consistent frame throughout the animation, producing an eerie stillness amid the moving images on the walls.”
The AweMeChannel shared this awesome stop-motion video created by 3D artist Chris Carlson who used anamorphic chalk drawings to depict the creation and play of a giant game of Tetris. Despite the fact that watching the step-by-step creation of this piece enables you to see Chris’ clever shading and use of perspective, the illusion is wonderfully convincing.
“The Baron connected the bricky buttons and the d-pad to small push buttons, which are in turn connected the circuit board of a NES controller. He built spring-loaded modules using Technic pieces to prevent the big LEGO buttons from getting stuck on the small push buttons.”
Because the Baron enjoys playing NES games on his PC, the giant LEGO NES controller also hooks up to a USB converter.

Meat monsters = awesome. This meaty monster is called Meatenstein and he can be found in the game ‘Splosion Man, created for the Xbox Live Arcade by Twisted Pixel Games in 2009. “The game’s title character, ‘Splosion Man, was created by the fictional laboratory Big Science. The character is made entirely of explosive material. The aim of the game is to “splode” through a series of levels consisting of puzzles, traps, and enemies to escape the facility.”
As you might have guessed based on his ferocious appearance, Meatenstein is one of ‘Splosion Man’s adversaries. In fact, he’s the big boss that ‘Splosion Man has to fight at the end of the game: “‘Splosion Man’s final obstacle, the culmination of all his meat making escapades coming back for one last fight. He’s big, bad, hungry, and would like nothing more than a helping of fried ‘Splosion Man.”
We love origami and have previously featured the work of Brian Chan here on the Geyser of Awesome. His origami is exceptional and today is a perfect excuse to share even more of it, this time in the form of a variety of fantastic manga, anime, video game, and comic book characters.
Here you see the wonderful Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro, Batman (with bat friend), an adorable Chocobo from the Final Fantasy video game series, Iron Man, Vash the Stampede and Nicholas D. Wolfwood from Trigun, and Suigintou from Rozen Maiden. Fan-freaking-tastic.
