This is a link post WipEout... made of cardboard!
I realise this may not be so interesting to those of you who aren't as WipEout-obsessed as me, but I thought I'd post it because (as the full article says) chances are most of us have played a WipEout game if we've ever had a go on a PlayStation. This bloke has made a playable replica out of an arcade cabinet that controls an RC car around a cardboard track. I want a go! (Turn the sound down on the vid; that peepy techno is really piercing)

This is a normal post Looks like it is made from a type of medium density fibreboard.
Cardboard might not have the desired properties for this kind of device.

It's most deffinately cardboard. Most of my work time is currently consumed by a project installing a new control system on a machine that makes the stuff...
