Wipeout: Cardboard Edition

What do you do when you love PlayStation classic ‘Wipeout’ but can’t afford a PS3? Well if you’re German and have lots of free time you recreate the Wipeout experience using some cardboard boxes, a radio controlled car and an old arcade cabinet.  Of course.

Malte Jehmlich had the idea to create a cardboard version of the game, helped by numerous friends who stand around the track cheering – and helping out with inevitable crashes. Check out the rather fantastic video below.

  1. I have a remote-controlled Second World War tank & I actually have a lot of cardboard too. I wonder what game I could make? Hehe.

  2. I want a go.

  3. wow those graphics are almost as good as GT5

  4. Das ist wunderbar!
    Um.. would it be terribly wrong of me to refer to it as the VolksWipeout.. :b

  5. Do a barrel roll! =D

    • I’d like to see the earthquake weapon on this track! :D

  6. That is cracking, maybe needs a few lazers and explosives though.
