Mario Bros. POW Block Clock

Mario POW Block Alarm Clock by Dave Delisle

I found this really cool LED pixel clock, and it struck me as something that would be ideal for 8-bit or 16-bit video game clocks. The first thing that came to mind was the POW block from Mario Bros, which has a really simple look and would be ideal as a way to tell time. This device would be great as a desk or alarm clock.

The clock could cycle through the POW text until tapped (or hit) to display the current time, or it could just be a full-time clock with POW appearing on demand or on the hour or when an alarm sounds.

As you know I like to advocate violence towards alarm clocks, and the POW block is meant to take abuse! The POW text would appear when the alarm sounds, and it won’t go away until you hit snooze or shut off the alarm.

Another way to go would be to suspend the clock (just like this neat Mario Question Block lamp) and you’d hit it underneath to silence the alarm.

Super Mario Bathroom Sink Fixtures

Super Mario Bathroom Sink Fixtures

When it comes to indoor plumbing why not have a Super Mario-themed bathroom sink? You got your mushroom handles, a Warp Pipe faucet, and a Piranha Plant that acts as the lever for the drain plug thingy. You could also enlist a Chain Chomp to act as a drain stopper for an older sink.

Note: it’s not very apparent here, but on top of the mushrooms are round-shaped H and C letters to indicate hot and cold water.

Super Mario World Watch

Super Mario World watch clock by Dave Delisle

This is not a watch or clock design exactly, just a clock face design that can be applied to a clock or watch. And this face design uses the ten Boos that flew in a circular pattern in a Ghost Castle level in Super Mario World (SNES). Filling in the void is a question block and Mario himself.
