Abhishek Singh recreated the first level of Super Mario Bros as an augmented reality game where you play as Mario

With the advent of technology, video games now feel more lifelike than ever before. But what about the old classics we used to love to play? Programmer and developer Abhishek Singh found a way to bring the original Super Mario Bros game from 2D to augmented reality. Singh used Microsoft HoloLens and Unity3D to recreate the first level of the game, and even did a run of it in Central Park (in full Mario costume, of course) in order to show how the game's mechanics work when you're in Mario's role. Of course, anyone playing this game would look rather odd, jumping up in the air or slamming down imaginary mushroom enemies, but the payoff behind the headset is worth it to actively play one of the most famous video games of all time.

Watch the classic Mario game come to life in the video below:
