I have always had a soft spot for arcade games that had racing of some sort. This was mostly because when I was a kid you could only find racing games with wheels and pedals in the arcade.

A guy has cobbled up a seriously sweet combination of one of those old school sit down arcade racing games and used it to control a real RC car on a DIY track made of cardboard. The track is so cool I would have been impressed with it alone.

The little RC cars are equipped with an onboard camera so the player of the arcade game can steer them around the cardboard track. I really want this thing.
