    I recall seeing those a while back or maybe it was just a mock up.

    Nice idea though.
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    I remember seeing them before also, I don't think this is their original idea.

    Not sure I'd trust 240v going through them

    I already have an upgraded version of something like this in my game room. Mine just fits over the light faceplate, and is a joystick instead of buttons. Pulling the joystick down turns the light on, up turns them off. There's a couple buttons on it too, they are pointless though and just play sound effects that sound like a gun firing in an older arcade game if it has batteries in it. I can post pics of the one I actually have if needed.

    File for the pic is too big for me to upload on the forum (19k limit) so I linked to my dropbox.

    Nice.

    Now put some batteries in it and play the sounds. LOL.

    Prototype is 3D printed so I guess if you have the know how, you could make custom ones, like in the shape of Pacman or a Space Invader or something and print them clear or some very light color. Add a little electronics and you can put LED's in there also.
