Mario Kart 8 In Real Life – Your Dreams Are Now A Reality

Penzoil and Nintendo have partnered up to give SXSW attendees a real life Mario Kart experience at the Palmer Events Center! At this event, there will be four karts on the track at the same time and racers will speed around the track multiple times to see who can get the fastest time! A cool feature that was added was the ability to get items and power-ups simply by driving over icons on the road! Although there are power-ups from the actual Mario Kart franchise, Pennzoil decided to join the fun by adding a few of their own power-ups! These change the way the kart’s work, and can affect you for the better, or for the worse. Some of these effects include speeding up the kart, slowing it down, changes in traction, and even more! This piece of news will give you all the details!

How does all that even work? Does driving over icons on the track trigger something in an on-board CPU in the karts, or what?
