      Gently headbutting the lamp to turn it on and off is so emotionally fulfilling!

      Is it just me or am I the only one that wish it was easier to tell what the block is with the light off? I mean with the light off I don't really see it as Mario Question Mark Block but more a yellow block with some dark squiggles on the sides. With the light on you can make out the question mark a lot better but even than the image of the question mark looks blurry / out of focus / faded.

      Got my lamp and I love it. Also got mine to go into power star mode once, but I can figure out how I did it.

    5. Ira Roth on

      And I just found star mode!

      Forget being here in time for christmas.... This arrived just in time for Festivus! Im seriously happy and am so proud to have helped back this project. Next step.... Lets figure out something for Zelda... Maybe some kind of Triforce Lamp that in 3 triangles and three different colors then activated as one, become a white light.... Good Job to all those involved!

      Mark me down as one happy customer. It's better than the video shows. It came with a ridiculously long cord which is exactly what something like this needs, that was a nice surprise. The question mark is a little hard to see when the lamp is off, but it looks perfect when the lamp is on. I don't know if I missed this in all the update videos but after its been on a while, maybe 30 second and you go to turn it off, it makes a different noise. I think it's the one up sound. Nice surprise. I was also under the impression you actually had to hit the bottom. Not the case it's motion activated but only from directly underneith and very close. I purchased the stand in case I didn't have a place to hang it, and although I'm not using it, it is really nicely made.

      A+ job I seriously could not be happier with it!

      Hey everyone!!! I'm so sorry for being away from this chain. We've been handling customer service emails from all sides, so I've been a bit scattered.

      If you received a lamp but there's a problem with it, please email:

      If you do not yet have your tracking number, and would like it, please email:

      Thanks so much and happy holidays!

      My lamp just turned up in the UK. There is a crack in the bottom along the line of where the electronics are housed. It doesn't activate by touch at all, when it hangs it just goes off whenever it wants. I think I got a 'dud'.

    10. Kenneth Eagles on

      I still haven't received a shipping notice. Any idea what the go is? I was hoping to have this by Christmas but guess that's not happening.

    11. Dale Higgs on

      Well worth the wait! Once these are available in bulk, I could see myself buying a ton of these. Possibly the best invention of the year. Who has received theirs and made it go into Star Power mode?!

    12. Cameron Gibbs on

      Got mine the other day. I was going to give it to my boys for Christmas but after playing with it, I may just keep it for myself. Too fun! :) Ok. I guess, I'll give it to them.

      Got my lamp today and it looks/works great! Thank you :)

    15. Redhawk Thirtysix on

      Hi. I will post a picture of the problem in the comments of your latest facebook posts. Email would work better, so please tell me who/which email to contact

    16. Amy on

      It's a Christmas miracle! I got this for my husband for Xmas and wasn't sure it would make it in time. But you did it! Against the odds you made it happen! Thank you, and I'm sure he'll thank you too once he gets to unwrap it!

    17. Adam Bean on

      Got mine today ... hope I'm not the only dummy that said "where's the instructions"?

    18. Redhawk Thirtysix on

      Hey. I have an issue. My lamp is not making any sound. Help!

      8-Bit Lit, I just got my lamp. It's awesome! Thanks!
      I just have one question: Are we getting t-shirts? yes/no?

    20. Drake

      2 lamps leave the same place 50 minutes apart, one is now 814 miles further away than the other one. LOLz! Well at least I will have one lamp delivered tomorrow!

      @ Blake - You could try covering that hole on the bottom, it muffles the sound by a noticeable amount for me.

    22. Blake Maloof on

      Just got mine! Wooh!

      Is there any way to lower the volume or muffle the speaker? It's a bit loud for the office.

    23. David Spear on

      Got mine. Fun product! You've done a great job running this campaign. Look forward to the next one!

    24. Mike Webb on

      Just got an update from UPS my tracking number now says 'HELD BY ORIGIN LOCATION' anyone else have that happen?

      Feeling a bit nervous I haven't seen my shipping notice yet... Fingers crossed I get it before Christmas!


      Regardless, when it works, it works well and glad that I've backed this project for others to buy it themselves.


      I got my lamp and holy heck, the sensor is WAY too sensitive. I brought to work to show off and all of a sudden it started to go on and off with lights and coin noises until I pulled the plug

      Luckily, everyone was cool about it (working in a gaming QA department and all) but I was expecting that the sensor activates when you lightly tap, not simply wave under it like a motion sensor. I assumed the reason it went off was because the metal stand gave out enough static to trigger the sensor.

      I've move the block up higher and have no issues.

      Oh snap, got a random power star. :) It's my lucky day.

      Got mine today in Nevada. I'm thinking that capacitive 'touch' sensor is so sensitive you could mount the whole board on a clear acrylic frame offset a few centimeters from the bottom of the lamp and that along with maybe adding in a downward facing LED would get rid of that shadow on the bottom. Just a thought.

      East Coast US here. I should have mine in hand by 12/23 (Monday). Way to go, 8-bit!

    32. Michael C on

      Just got a notification that it was delivered, hopefully it'll be sitting by my front door when I get home from work. So excited!!!

      My custom engraved handmade ?block has been kicking ass since I hooked it up in my studio.. (Pics soon) Sometimes on a dry cold day you can activate it by walking by it..I guess the lamp builds up its own electrically charged field and when that happens I think a ghost can trigger it if it tried.. It turns super sensitive.. Pretty cool.. But if you wipe down each side with your hand or something it seems to take away the charged field and restore its basic touch function.. I Love it. Everyone loves it.. I'm about to order 2 more!!

      Hey Joey! We're going to be shipping out all the lamps within a couple days of each other. The Kickstarter lamps will go first, but we expect the website lamps to arrive within the same time-frame.

      Joey Durkin on

      Do you expect the lamps purchased through your website to also arrive by Christmas? (I ask because I bought a 2nd way through your site and am just curious when it will arrive :D)

    38. 8-Bit Lit Creator on

      Hey Brett! If you're in the US the carrier will likely be UPS.

    39. Brett Walford on

      Hi, I'll be out of town when my lamp comes in. Can you tell me what carrier is handling the delivery so I can contact them?

    40. 8-Bit Lit Creator on

      Hey Matthew. Yes the separate stands will be along the same timeline.

      Matthew Santos on

      Does this include the stands for bakers that pledged for the hand made special edition + stand?

    42. 8-Bit Lit Creator on

      Hey everyone! We just received info from the shipping company that the goods are coming into port tomorrow, but will be held for customs at least until Thursday. For everyone in the US, pre-Christmas delivery is highly likely. For international shipments, we'll be offering options to make sure that it arrives before Christmas. I'll be posting an update on this momentarily.

      - Adam

    43. Leah Typo Szpak on

      Can you please update us on estimated shipping dates please? Originally the estimate was november, but obviously that wasn't the case. I would like to make sure I get my lamp!

    48. Gail Morozoff on

      Mario's going to light the house on Christmas! Lol. I'm soo looking forward to getting the rest of the lamps. The hand made one is so cool!

    49. 8-Bit Lit Creator on

      Hey Redhawk, the lamps are on their way to the states. They're expected to arrive at the end of this week, and hopefully they'll pass quickly through customs. We'll ship them out as quickly as possible after that.

      Claudio, please email me at and we'll sort it out. Thanks!
