LEGO Super Mario Bros. Floor Lamp Can Be Your For A Princely Sum

il_fullxfull.638280264_q2sr

Everything in life comes at a price. The price you pay for not having the patience or the skill to build a magnificent 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square Super Mario Bros. floor lamp is an outrageous $2,200(USD). And let’s be honest, you know that if you had that kind of disposable income, you’d be it yesterday. Right?

This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

It’s made by Etsy seller PugsnLegos, who fortunately has other similar (but smaller) items for sale at more reasonable prices.

Hit the jump for lots more pictures and a video of the thing in action.

Deal Of The Day: 25% Off On NES30 Bluetooth Controller

redesign_15865431915154.GD8flk1fUbvNvC2FIJOd_height640

Playing games on mobile devices with on-screen controls just isn’t as much fun as with a dedicated controller. So if you’re in the market for something like that, you might want to take a look at the NES30 Bluetooth Controller. It connects to Android and iOS devices through Bluetooth, and looks exactly like an NES controller from the 80’s. If you were born in the 80’s, the retro look will be a throwback to all those mornings spent playing Ninja Gaiden while your parents harass you to get dressed for school. The keys are programmable, the battery rechargeable after 20+ hours of runtime, and it’s even compatible with PCs or Macs through a wired USB connection.

Normally you’d pay $40 for it, but it’s $29.99 with today’s deal.

Space Invaders Toilet Paper Holder

space-invaders-toilet-paper-holder

This is a 3D printed toilet paper holder. It’s shaped like a Space Invaders, the “PX361″ to be exact (yes, that’s its name, at least according to one website we found). It holds toilet paper, costs $20 and is made from both ABS and PLA plastic. And if you think there should be more to say about this product, then it’s really not for you.

Old School Style NES30 Gamepad Works With Devices Today

nes30

The time is 1985. You’ve just come back home from a gruelling day at kindergarten. You just want to unwind with a nice cup of milk and your favourite gaming system in front of you. That was bliss. Fast forward 30 years, and you sadly contemplate your modern life with all its stale responsibilities and obnoxious obligations. But for a few minutes a day, you can still relive some of that former glory. The NES30 gamepad pictured above is a 1:1 replica of the Nintendo Entertainment System controller from the 80’s. This one connects to several devices through Bluetooth, however, allowing you to game with more freedom than anyone can with the on-screen controls seen on most mobile device games. Ok, there are four extra buttons that weren’t part of the original, so exact faithfulness was overlooked in favour of modern usability. But it’s still a pretty good approximation to what the original looked like. The battery will last 20 hours between charges, and it will work with just about any device capable of playing games, except consoles. It’ll cost you $40 to own.

Want This: R-Kaid-R is a Portable Arcade Machine

-Kaid-R arcade

Arcade machines are big and bulky, and they only let you play one game per machine. Regardless of that fact, they’re still all sorts of awesome and most people would sell an arm and a leg to get the machine for their favorite game. That is, if they had the space for it after coughing up the dough for it.

An alternative? The R-Kaid-R portable arcade machine. While it’s not really lighter on the wallet, it’s definitely way more compact than a typical machine.
