RC Koopa Shells made by 3D printer will make everything better

John Moe Aug 8, 2011

Yes, the economy is collapsing and soon we’ll have to eat dirt and live in houses made of whatever dirt we haven’t eaten yet, BUT some dude made some cool things.
Michael Curry has been out of a job for a while but he did happen to have a massive 3D printer at his disposal. So he designed and started printing remote control cars based on the Koopa Shells from the Mario Kart game.


Curry, who goes by the name Skimbal as well, has posted instructions on how you can print your own versions if you have 3D printer lying around.
