This has gotta’ be one of the best lookin’ lamps we’ve come across in a while. It’s a custom made touch sensitive lamp after the fashion of the Super Mario Brothers question mark blocks that appear throughout the series. It’s 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches, and made of laser-cut plexiglass and lit from inside by energy-efficient LEDs. The lamp is very light and suspended from an integrated 11-foot power cord, so it’s ready to be hung from a hook on your ceiling and plugged directly into an outlet. If you want to use the lamp on a side table or by your bed, they also offer a custom acrylic stand (sold separately).
To turn the lamp on and off, merely punch, ahem, we 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.
