Don’t get too excited, I think we’re still a long way away from exciting, fast-paced hovercraft races. I the meantime though, Wipeout fan Malte Jehmlich decided to create his own “real” version of the game by hooking up a camera to a remote controlled car screaming around a carboard track based on a popular Wipeout track. He then hooked up the controls into an arcade racing cabinet with a monitor that allows the player to see what the car sees. You could argue that this is taking geekiness to new heights, but how many of you can say that you would pass up a chance to actually try it? I sure as hell wouldn’t mind giving it a go. Anyway, check out the article at Geek.com here, it has video of the thing in action.

Like many things in life, playing with plastic toys is as close as we'll come to the real thing
