Origin of Cool: USA

Nintendo teamed up with West Coast Customs to create two real-life Mario Karts for display at the Los Angeles Auto Show. 

The first kart as you can probably recognise is the iconic Mario kart. Luigi is not left out though as his bee-mobile is also at the show.

Is this the next Nintendo DS Lite?
Teague Labs' latest device combines classic RPG (role-playing game) Super Mario Bros with the simplicity of a plain cardboard box.

Origin of Cool likes the way they have explored the convergence between the online and offline worlds. On a bigger scale, this could become a great in-store demo for new games.
