Here is a link to the full article explaining the video. There is something about using Super Mario to explain quantum physics that really speaks to me. I was a huge Nintendo kid growing up and I also LOVED science. In another life, I would study computer science and do work with visuals and technology like this guy.
This Mario demonstration also works as an interesting view into game-play, problem solving, and routine. I would love to have this feature to record all failed attempts and play them on top of each other as a visual mashup of all my failures and triumphs. Or, to take this idea a step further, imagine having every version of your daily morning routine recorded and played on top of each other. You could see how similar many of your daily habits are, and how small changes in your patterns effect the whole morning from that moment forward.

EDIT: I just found another video using this technique. Its so fun to watch.
