San Francisco-based Bryan Duxbury and Adam Ellsworth of Etsy shop 8 bit lit have created the awesome Interactive 8-bit Question Block Lamp which looks like something right out of Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. video game. They also sell a DIY kit to make this lamp at home.
To turn the lamp on and off, merely punch, ahem, I mean touch, the bottom of the cube and you’ll be rewarded with both light and the classic coin noise. Every eight times you toggle the light, you’ll get a 1-UP! It’s very bright in a dark room and still visible in daylight.
