Watch Someone Play Level 1-1 In First-Person Using Microsoft's Hololens

Mario's iconic first level has been recreated countless times in every level editor, game engine, theater production or cardboard box you can think of. But few of them have gone the first-person route, and even fewer have gone the augmented reality route.

Abhisek Singh has built a simple version of level 1-1 in Hololens, which we first tried out last year but has still not had a wide commercial release (it is currently only available for developers and organizations at price points ranging from $3,000 to $5,000. But though you may not be able to get your hands on Singh's vision of level 1-1 anytime soon, it's still a fun curiosity to see the level at this scale. It's also fun to watch people look on as a man dressed as Mario jumps his way through Central Park.
