Science and engineering have given us so many things that mankind once thought were mere fantasy: the gift of flight, fax machines, the toaster. Now, the march of progress continues to this day with this real-life creation of pop-culture transportation.

A mechanical engineering student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology built a miniature go-kart called the "Chibikart." It look crude, but it's actually a very sturdy and zippy electric-powered vehicle. It also looks and moves just like the rides in the various 'Mario Kart' racing games.

‘Perfect Strangers’ Video Game Lets You Pursue Your Dreams With Balki

'Perfect Strangers' was about more than just mismatched cousins who often found themselves in ridiculous circumstances and occasionally danced the "Dance of Joy." The sitcom, which ran from 1986 to 1993, was about following one's dreams.

In the case of Balki Bartokomous (Bronson Pinchot), his dream was to escape his family sheep farm in the Greek-like island of Mypos and start anew in America. Balki is also the star of an addictive new 'Perfect Strangers' video game from designer Jason Oda.

10-Year-Old Boy Designs Video Game for His Blind Grandmother

10-year-old Dylan Viale has a very close relationship with his grandmother Sherry, who is blind. The two walk dogs and go to the movies together, and recently went to a Lego event where they helped build a giant Lego Yoda.

But because of her vision impairment, Dylan wasn't able to share with his grandmother his love of video games. So the fifth-grader at Hidden Valley Elementary in Martinez, CA, did something about that -- he developed a video game which blind and sighted people can play together.

Nine-Year-Old Caine Builds Awesome Arcade Out of Cardboard Boxes

Video arcades aren't as popular as they once were, what with modern gaming systems bringing high-quality graphics into the home. And a video arcade featuring only games made out of cardboard? Well, that obviously wouldn't stand a chance in today's marketplace.

What If ‘Angry Birds’ Was a Retro Video Game?

Ever wonder what 'Angry Birds' would look like if it was created way back in the '80s? The folks at Squirrel-Monkey.com have reimagined the massively successfully mobile game as an 8-bit creation complete with blocky sprites and cheesy MIDI music.

Retro ‘Mad Men’ Game Gives Don Draper the 8-Bit Treatment

We love 'Mad Men,' but a drama about boozy ad execs set against the backdrop of the early 1960s isn't exactly fun subject material for a video game. Nonetheless, YouTube's FineBros have made an interactive video series which puts you in the shoes of Don Draper as he sets out to fulfill an objective given by fellow drunkard Roger Sterling.
