8 Bit Lit Presents: Interactive Super Mario Coin Block Pendant Lamp!

Okay. 8 Bit Lit’s Etsy Page has just jumped to the front of the line on my places to shop for my birthday. My house will not be complete without at least one of these lamps!

From their Etsy page: “This is 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. The internal power supply is 100v-240v compatible, so the lamp will work even abroad with just a simple plug adapter. If you want to use the lamp on a side table or by your bed, we offer a custom acrylic stand (sold separately).

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.”
