Sometimes people do really cool things with common, household items. I’ve had and idea something similar for some time, but, to see it actually done and done well is just cool (plus, I have a reputation for ideas that other people impliment before me).
Anyway, this is a Mario scene done using only push-pins at Fraser Valley university. There are around 17,000 push-pixels in all, and the results are AWESOME!
