Let’s Enjoy the Old-Time Feel of This Amazing Mechanical Donkey Kong Machine

This contraption looks like an alternate-reality version of the arcade game that pretty much saved Nintendo. No pixels are present in engineer Martin Raynsford's laser-cut re-creation of Donkey Kong but you do control Mario via an NES hooked up to servo motors. This first attempt only lets you jump as Mario but Raynsford writes that he'll start work on a sidescrolling version soon. Still, pretty frikkin' cool
