The Mario figurine, which the hacker turned into a voodoo doll, was part of the Lego Super Mario set that went on sale this year. This effect was achieved thanks to the electronic elements inside the toy. It has an accelerometer, gyroscope, Bluetooth sensor and other components. The developer intercepted the signals that the figurine was sending via Bluetooth and sent them to the emulator's controls. This setting lasted for about four hours.
