 - Wipeout in real-life, Malte Jehmlich, Cardboard track, Remote control car, Racer

German designer Malte Jehmlich and company have brought PlayStation classic title Wipeout quite literally to life thanks to their real-world cardboard represntation.

The designer spent countless hours re-creating the seminal racer using wood, cardboard, a radio controlled car and an arcade cabinet with steering wheel and screen connected to the car's on-board camera.

As you can see by the video below, the results are mind-blowing and it's a brilliant if not entirely useless implementation.

Engadget reports that the project originally started as a two-month test bed but has gone so well that the designer plans to implement force-feedback, lights and even powerups.

Some people have too much time and money on their hands.

It'd be quite cool if arcades did stuff like that. Videogames are pretty much dead in the water in arcades and the only cabs that make any money are big stuff you sit in - so if big installations like this could be tied in with direct control, I reckon they'd be a moneyspinner.
