Mario Kart is now in VR! Put together by Nintendo and Bandai Namco, the game runs off HTC Vive, and is played on a go-kart that moves with the player and steers with a steering wheel for complete immersion.

The VR headset allows the player to look around the course, and the player wears gloves with embedded sensors, so that players can pick up power-ups and throw them at other players to get ahead. Mario Kart VR is only available at an arcade in Tokyo for now, but it's exciting to see where this is going!

The Shoe That Grows here were developed by the charity Because International. They were made for children in poor countries and have 3 different sizes - each of which can span over 5 different shoe sizes.

They're made with compressed rubber which is something similar to a car tire. They have velcro side straps and a peg at the front for the adjustability. One pair is built to last for 5 years because children often outgrow donated shoes within a year. So far they've distributed 120,000 pairs to 91 different countries.
