diy touch-sensitive super mario question mark block lamp 1

Just like the Super Mario games, here’s one game-inspired light-up box that functions as a lamp. The most attractive feature of this custom-made lamp is that it doesn’t turn on and off like other lamps do. The way it works is by having a touch-sensitive surface at the bottom of the box so it can be switched on or off just by touching its bottom like how Mario does in-game.

Made by 8 bit lit, this Super Mario style coin block touch sensitive lamp is fully custom-made from scratch and definitely looks cool for a gamer’s room or a workspace for a bunch of creative people. Not only does it light up or power off on activation, sound effects from the game such as coin or a 1-UP received are also produced.

Watch the light-up touch sensitive Super Mario question mark block in action:

 

 

Sure you can punch it to make it light up but as from the video shown, all it needs is just a light touch to activate the sensor. No one wants to end up with a broken lamp anyway.

The DIY touch-sensitive Super Mario question mark coin block lamp retails for $74.99 on Etsy.
