A DIY Mario Mystery Block Button That Every Lazy Computer User Needs

mystery block button

There’s cool, and then there’s COOL. This Mario Mystery Block that powers up your computer is the latter.

Imagine, if you will, sitting down to your computer desk and instead of contorting under your desk to hit the power button *ughh* you could just pow like Mario, and on goes your computer!

The project starts with a toy Mario mystery block, and after some soldering, shrink wiring, and motherboard wire connecting, becomes the glorious Lazy Button you see here. Only the truly lazy will invest so much effort in something that eliminates such a minor task. For that, we salute you Gabriel Olofsson.

Check out more pics and details on the build in the gallery below.
