Sadomasochism, is of course, only part of the appeal
NewYork about Demon's Souls
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.
