Playable Paper Super Mario… no really, he’s made of paper

Taking Paper Mario to its logical — albeit extreme — conclusion, an artist / DIY’er named Keith Lam has created the first physical, playable implementation of Super Mario Brothers. By emphasizing Mario’s movement on the background, and turning the “TV” into the object which moves, the character appears to traverse the familiar landscape of SMB, complete with collision detection, brick movement, and mechanized jumping. The “system” is built using a chain-driven platform, which is shakily directed with an actual NES (well, Famicom) controller, thus allowing for some game play — though with response times like this, you’re better off just watching. Speaking of, check the video after the break and see the system in action.
