Super Violin Bros.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the Super Mario Bros. theme performed on violin, but musician Teppei Okada’s version adds all the appropriate sound effects to a few different levels of the classic Nintendo platformer. He’s done the same for F-ZERO and Super Mario Kart among others.

Cardboard Mario Kart Hovercraft

Cardboard Mario Kart Hovercraft

After playing Mario Kart on his cardboard arcade machine, artist DanCreator wanted to ride in a real Mario Kart. So he got out his tools and got to building. To replicate the game’s anti-gravity zones, he attached two leaf blowers and some pool floats, so it glides like a hovercraft. We love how Dan recycles bits from other projects.

Drawing a Moiré Illusion

Drawing a Moiré Illusion

The moiré pattern created by moving a striped transparency over special images can create the illusion of movement. While we’ve seen the idea executed using printed images, this is the first time we’ve seen someone draw the patterns by hand. We’re guessing there’s some editing trickery going on here, but it fooled us.

Nintendo started out making playing cards, so it makes sense that they might occasionally dip their toe back in those waters. This official deck features images inspired by the game levels in various Super Mario games. Apparently, they’re a little thin compared to regular playing cards, so they’re best as a collector’s item.

If it seems familiar, he first performed the medley back in 2007.

Super Mario Cat Bros.

Super Mario Cat Bros.

Mario Kitty finds out that Princess Kitty has gone missing, and recruits the help of Human Luigi to rescue her in this cute, charming, and well-executed short film by Mr.TVCow. We’re dying to see what Bowser looks like. We’re thinking an English mastiff with a spiky collar.
