No gamer's workspace or nightstand is truly complete without the USB Mushroom Lamp. The USB Mushroom Lamp is designed to look like the magic mushrooms from the Super Mario series that do everything from giving Mario and Luigi extra lives to allowing them to shoot fireballs from their bellies.

Unfortunately, this lamp will not give you any of the aforementioned benefits, but it is a subtly geeky way to light up your workspace. The USB Mushroom Lamp is touch-activated and can run off of four AA batteries or can be powered via USB. Perhaps the best feature of this lamp is its price, a very gamer-friendly $10.
