Augmented Reality developer Abhishek Singh recreated the original Super Mario Bros in AR using his Microsoft Hololens headset. He took the game for a spin in Central Park to show us what it looks like, and it’s quite impressive, to say the least.
He built the game using the Unity engine coupled with the Hololens framework, and the motion tracking looks very accurate. The graphics are of course blocky, but that’s how 8-bit Mario looked like anyway.
Hopefully Nintendo won’t sue him over this project.
