This is how Super Mario Bros. would have play in the real world

Super Mario Bros has been used, abused, and repurposed for so many things, it's not really a surprise to hear about it being used in an augmented reality setting. In fact, we're more surprised it took this long for someone to do it. At least 28 year old developer Abhishek Singh can enjoy that fame for a while as news of his adventures spread far and wide. Yes, this is a somewhat modified version of the first level of Super Mario Bros if it had been something that happened in our real, 3D world.
