In 100 years, people studying our society are likely to be baffled by certain things. Combing through our cultural debris, historians and archaeologists will have to try and piece together what twerking was, or what a Jedward was used for. Chief among those cultural obsessions likely to stump them will be the apparent worship of a tiny Italian plumber, which will make no sense to anyone. Still in for a penny in for a pound we say and so perk up your Monday morning no end by spending some time at the Museum of Mario.
This smart, slick and informative interactive beauty is a collaboration between gaming network IGN and Intel’s HTML5 Hub, and is well worth exploring both for the interesting Mario-based factoids you can glean but also for the super fun bells and whistles built into the experience. Lovely stuff.
