Moving Mario: Real-World Sidescroller

Keith Lam has built a prototype of his "Moving Mario" installation, which trades on the conceit that sidescrolling platform games aren't actually moving the avatar, but scrolling the background. In Lam's installation, the character (and the "screen") actually move left to right. Very cute—but I'm more curious to see how he'll animate all the blocks and enemies in the real world. It's like a Super Mario Bros. carnival game!
