This listing is for the kit version of our custom-designed touch sensitive Question Mark Block Lamp. When finished, it's 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches of pure laser-cut acrylic awesomeness lit from inside by energy-efficient LEDs. The lamp is very light and designed to be suspended from its power cord. If you'd like to have it on a side table or nightstand, we also offer a custom acrylic stand (separate listing).

To turn the lamp on and off, merely punch, ahem, I mean touch, the bottom of the cube and you'll be rewarded with both light and the classic coin noise. Every eight times you toggle the light, you'll get a 1-UP! It's very bright in a dark room and still visible in daylight.

This lamp is 100% custom designed, from the exterior to the electronics inside.

Assembly is required! (If you would prefer to buy the lamp fully assembled, please check out our other listings.) This kit includes all the parts needed to construct the lamp:
- Custom-milled printed circuit board and touch sensor
- Super bright LEDs, resistors and transistors
- Pre-programmed ATTiny85 microcontroller
- Speaker
- 5v power supply (100v-240v input compatible)
- Laser-cut acrylic enclosure

To assemble, you'll need a soldering iron and solder, some hot glue or double stick tape, and a little superglue. That's all! You can find the still-evolving assembly instructions here: bit.ly/lampguide
