About this project
"With your support, we can implement a new design for a CHEAPER, EASIER to install, and MASS-PRODUCIBLE product to meet the soaring demand. With the Kickstarter funds, we will cover the costs of Design, Custom plastic injection molds, and a first run of as many items as we can make."

-WE WANT TO GIVE BACK through Leet Dreams so we have committed to donate a portion of all current and future Light Switch purchases to help fund microloans, through World Vision, to hardworking men and women living in poverty. This program helps third-world entrepreneurs who want to support their family and improve their community by starting a business of their own. Follow the link to and help us change lives! GO!
ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
Does your hair stand on end when you hear an 8-bit theme? Was your favorite word as a child, ‘Quarter?’ Can you pull off a Haduken at least 80% of the time? UUDDLRLRBA anyone? Then you’re in the right place (and you now have unlimited lives). Even if you’re not as ‘leet’ as the Power Glove, we welcome you to our world...because LeetDreams, The Original Arcade Light Switch is not just for gamers. LeetDreams invites you to hit the lights and press start!
Use it in your man-cave...to be awesome.
Use it in your child’s playroom...they will be begging you to turn off the lights.
Use it in the classroom...it can be a fun teaching aid.
Use it in the Office...It will be a conversation starter for clients!
Use it throughout the home...see our classy all white version.
Wherever you use our Arcade light switch you can be sure to be one of a kind.
WHAT EXACTLY IS IT:
Light switch? Arcade? Arcade-style Light Switch? Tell me more…
Our one-of-a-kind product combines the fun, hip style of arcade classics with functionality to create a unique light switch. At present it is only available through our Etsy Shop. LeetDreams is customizable and includes a variety of colored buttons on either a black or white plate. Now you can light up your room the same way you light up the scoreboard with LeetDreams the Original Arcade Light Switch!
Our names are Aly and Meghan, and we are both graphic designers in California. We stumbled on the idea of making the product you see here after Aly’s husband built his own MAME arcade cabinet and found a use for some of the spare parts. The finished product was posted on our Etsy store, and demand skyrocketed after many tech blogs including Wired, Gizmodo, This is Why I'm Broke, Uncrate, and Ubergizmo featured our arcade style light switches. They all had great things to say about LeetDreams®The Original Arcade Light Switch:
“Why Wouldn’t You Want Arcade Buttons on Your Light Switch?
Every time you turn on a light, you'll be reminded of those countless hours spent mashing buttons and dropping quarters into your favorite arcade cabinet.” GIZMODO
"Arcade-Button Light Switch Will Make Your Home Awesome Who wants a boring old light switch on their wall when they could have a pair of classic arcade machine buttons to bash instead?" WIRED
"The arcade light switch is a unique take on the standard household light switch! Perfect for a game room, child’s room, or any fan of classic arcade style games – this light switch looks great anywhere!" THIS IS WHY I'M BROKE
We also recently discovered that LeetDreams® will be used on the set of new kids show. Keep your eyes peeled.
Needless to say, we have been completely overwhelmed by the response and joy our product has brought to people all over the world, geeks and non geeks alike. Just search LeetDreams or Arcade Light Switch, and our product will be the first, upon many, to show up on your web browser. When we launched our Etsy store, we had no idea that so many would respond with such interest for our product, and we are thrilled to see our light switches bring so much joy and fun to others.
SO, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Like stated above, we have been so excited and overwhelmed by the popularity of our product. Unfortunately, we cannot get light switches into the hands of our customers fast enough. With your support, we can implement improvements to our current designs for a CHEAPER, EASIER to install, and MASS-PRODUCIBLE product to meet the soaring demand, and bring new exciting ideas to life. With the Kickstarter funds, we will cover the costs of Design, Custom plastic injection molds, and a first run of as many items as we can make. Our power meter is charged we just need your help.
Below are some more pictures for your viewing pleasure...
Our plan is to implement our Leet Dreams v2.0 design which will result in a mass-producible, safer, cheaper product that we can get in the hands of our fans as fast as possible. The new design will be a replacement switch plate cover that will look the same as our current switch but will attach to an already installed standard plate switch. We feel that this is the ideal solution as it will have no electrical component.
