The Super Mario coin lamp


Super Mario might be a short, overweight, pixelated plumber but that doesn't stop us respecting him. The moustache alone is the work of a man's man.

And now you can make like Mario with your very own question mark block light. The custom made touch-sensitive lamp is 6in x 6in x 6in, and made of laser-cut plexiglass and lit from inside by energy efficient LEDs. The lamp is suspended from an integrated 11ft power cord, so you can hang it from a hook on your ceiling.

The best bit about it? To turn it on all you need to do is punch the bottom of the cube and you'll be rewarded with both light and the classic coin noise. And every eight times you hit the light, you'll get a 1-UP sound. Small things make us happy.
