CYBER-PHYSICAL MARIO KART 2016

Introduction

The goal of this project is to create a virtual reality simulation of the popular Nintendo game Mario Kart. This is to be accomplished by having a driver on a physical go-cart within a real-world test track and simulating the game for the user through the use of the Oculus Rift and the Google Tango Tablet.
