Super Mario Maker Level Makes Math Fun



People have done incredible things with Super Mario Maker on their Nintendo Wii Us. They’ve dipped into different genres, like shoot’em ups. They’ve composed music. Now, a user who goes by Helgefan has made a functioning calculator.


Super Mario Maker’s The Cluttered Chaos-Calculator, found at 705C-0000-01B3-Fe78, lets you add numbers between 0 and 7. It only handles addition, no subtraction, division, or multiplication. Helgefan used the game to create a functioning digital circuit with “and” and “or” logic gates, with shelmet s being used as binary states. Helgen offered a full explanation of how it all functions on Reddit.


It will take some time to get your sum. The video of the level above takes about two and a half minutes to add 6+6. It doesn’t make the accomplishment any less amazing. The Cluttered Chaos-Calculator goes above and beyond what we expected from a Super Mario level editor.


Super Mario Maker is immediately available for the Nintendo Wii U.
