Now You're Playing With Power: Joystick Light Switch

This is the $30 Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate from ThinkGeek. It looks like an arcade joystick, but it's not -- it's a light switch. I know -- it was hard for me to grasp at first too. The two buttons make different 'PEW PEW!' sound effects and the actual joystick controls the lights like a regular switch. Alternatively, turn out the lights the same way I do: not paying the electric bill. Come on, all the cool kids junkies are doing it. I'll touch your privates for a fix.

Thanks to beebs, who turns out lights the drunk way: yelling and throwing things at the lamp until it breaks.

    This makes the front page, but the home made Lamborghini that does 160 I submitted isn't interesting enough? Your selection process is truly mysterious to me.

    Somebody have an extra dose of self-importance this morning? Or you really think that's the right way to get someone's attention?

    Funny but could be better not worth my dime.

    It would be better it the control was the actual switch mechanism itself. remove the switch box and you wired up this box. that way any electronic needs would already be wired and you don't have to be bothered with replacing batteries. then the box could be programmed for more detailed instructions. along with turning lights on and off you could dim and in multiple light installations you could operate lights separately.

    Gotta remeber this is comming from the guys who brought us the useless box, I don't think multi-function userfriendlyness was in their brainstorm process, just joystick light switch and "pew pew" lol but yeah the battery thing crossed my mind too lol.
