MakerBot shows off the 3D printed turtle shell RC cars they are bringing to World Maker Faire NY this weekend.

There has been quite a bit of excitement over at the Botcave since Thingiverse user Skimbal launched his Turtle Shell Racers project (High and Low Power Edition). His project is both a love note to Mario Kart and Super Mario Bros in general, and probably the coolest MakerBot project we have seen to date: freely downloadable parts and building instructions for modding an RC car into a “Turtle Shell Racer.” Not sold in stores, but free to print on your MakerBot. It’s like playing Mario Kart in real life!
