This Mario Doorbell Plays Classic Sounds When Pressed

What better way to show you're a gamer than with a Mario doorbell? This doorbell won't play the insanely long theme songs from Mario, but it may do something even better.

Mario is the biggest name in video games hands down, and while his popularity has waned from the early years, he can still make fanboys go crazy. This Mario doorbell is an ode to the mustached Italian plumber and plays classic sounds from the game series.

The doorbell was made by designer Joseph Thai out of a laundry list of complex tech pieces including a PIC16F628A microcontroller. While many would expect the various theme songs when pressed, the doorbell actually plays the famous coin sound from Mario. At ten presses, the life up sound will play, and at 100 presses, the mushroom growing sound will go off. This is yet another inventive way to pay homage to the great Mario.
