Are you the type that dreams in Galaga? Do you hum the Street Fighter theme song while you walk to work? Do you wish lightswitches were a little more fun to use? If you've answered yes to any combination of the above, then we suggest conceding to that inner gamer and giving these modded arcade button lightswitches a shot.

From Aleph's Etsy Design Shop, you can pick up one of these custom-made lightswitch push buttons - the same kind you would find on real arcade machines.

We imagine this little hacked piece would be perfect for the kiddies or your ever-so-classy game room. Or, if you've already decked out your entire house in Space Invader vinyls, then maybe all of your rooms deserve this proper treatment.

A single plate goes for $30, which we find a bit steep considering it's just a plate custom cut with glued on replacement arcade buttons. Perhaps one of our talented readers may wish to give this a shot as a weekend DIY?
