For anyone who grew up playing Super Mario Bros., the game's distinctive sound effects are instantly recognizable. Take a listen to the video below and you'll know exactly what we're talking about.

This Super Mario Bros.-inspired light, spotted over at Gizmodo, plays the video game's iconic ping! sound whenever it's turned off or on. Owners can switch it on by pressing down on the block. (Punching it in search of a power-up is not recommended.)

The lamp can run on batteries, making it easy to transport around the Mushroom Kingdom—or to the other side of your bedroom. The 7-inch cube also has a USB port that allows you to charge it from your computer. Classic video game enthusiasts can purchase the official Nintendo product from Firebox for $36.
