DIY Touch Sensitive Super Mario Question Mark Block Lampby Gareth Mankoo
The number of times I wondered, as a youngster, as to what would happen if magic mushrooms and evil turtles existed, is quite countless. Now, we can make one of the many fantasies that Super Mario introduced us to, come alive. The DIY Touch Sensitive Super Mario Question Mark Block Lamp is a smart contraption that works like the real question marked bricks in the game. It has a sensor on the bottom that has to be touched, like Mario did, and will be turned on or off.
Some hardcore fans will want to make one themselves but I just hope that if you do, do make sure you can punch it. $80 is what the readymade one costs on Etsy.
