You'll never play 'Super Mario' like this

You'll never play 'Super Mario' like this

Super Mario Bros' World 1-1 must surely be the most recreated video game level in history. It's iconic. Yet seeing it in VR, with Microsoft Hololens, still feels new.

Clad in a homemade Mario costume, Singh recorded himself walking down a pathway in the park, jumping on any Goombas and Koopa Troopas that crossed his path.

European Union roaming charges scrapped from today

"The final level was more than 110m long!" For the most part, though, it's a fascinating, freaky recreation of a familiar experience.

While learning the absolute basics of HoloLens development, I literally placed a cube in a scene and for some reason jumped right under it and that's when the idea of recreating Mario struck me.

This Hololens program does a better job of bringing Mario into NY than the Super Mario Bros. movie did.

Tell us your thoughts in the comments and share this insane story that reminds us just how far technology and gaming have come since that SuperMario Bros. level was originally released.
