Wipe the floor with Space Invaders
Set phasers to fun
Governments may have been denying the existence of aliens for decades, but Register Hardware knows they exist because they’ve landed on our doormat - quite literally.
Space Invaders are back
Yes, if you’re a devoted retro-gamer sick of all the talk about Wii-this, PS3-that and Xbox-t'other then a Space Invaders doormat is bound to show off your geek chic. A pressure sensor within the doormat makes an LED strip of the space-age critters light up.
The doormat’s powered by four AAA batteries that sit inside a cabled battery pack, which you must placed inside your house – for obvious reasons. If you really care about the quality of doormats then you’ll be glad to know this one measures 640 x 400mm and is made from industrial-grade rubberised plastic.
What’s more to say? It’ll clean vistors’ shoes before they enter your nerd palace of love and is available from online retailer Firebox for £40 (€60/$80).
A geek would buy that mat, but a REAL GEEK would build the mat and make it better, faster, stronger, nanananananana
Re: @ About to get my first place
It's fairly obvious that he means he is about to buy his first house, and that this would be an ideal doormat.
Are you a bit thick, or what?
Paris, for obvious reasons.
For another wipe?
@ About to get my first place
Not sure I follow. Are you just excited you posted first? What is this a Yahoo group? And you must be a tween right?
Sheesh, and I though El Reg moderated these posts.
Re: Now that's just wrong
Perhaps the missing 80m is to allow for toolbars?
