NES x Mario Build Thread

We’re hooking up the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System to the internet. Allowing anyone to compete with other players for the best Super Mario speed run time. In this BUILD thread, you can see the latest updates on the project.

:ballot_box_with_check: Right now we have:

  • SurroRTG :exploding_head: - Surrogate’s low latency video streaming technology designed for interactive real-time experiences. Allowing people to control robotics thousands of miles away, as if they are playing a video game.
  • The original NES, Super Mario Bros cartrige, and controllers

:card_file_box: Things that need to be done:

  • Camera and Lighting setup
  • TV screen
  • Connect controllers to the internet
  • Design the look and feel of the stream
  • Lot’s of custom coding :computer::coffee:

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.

Stay tuned!

I don’t really understand… are you doing something like an emulator to play the NES? Doesn’t it already exist? :nail_care:

We’re connecting an actual physical vintage NES console to the internet. There are no emulators involved in this project.

How’s this project going? Are we going to be able to play soon?
Btw, do you intend to connect various consoles?
