Super Mario Bros. Recreated in a Cardboard Box


This is undoubtedly the coolest cardboard box you'll ever find. Complete with realistic side-scrolling action, this recreation of Super Mario Bros. in a box is, no doubt, one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

How does it work? You open the box and the game starts. A little knob on the right side allows Mario to jump over Goombas and other obstacles mounted with magnetic tape as he progresses through the world. If Mario misses his mark and passes over one of these magnetic areas, he dies and the game resets. It's just like the game on Nintendo, except in real life!

Watch the video below, showcasing the classic game recreated in real life, and in a cardboard box.
