Most doormats are about as interesting as...erm, doormats. And anything that veers from those boring, brown, bristly affairs usually features some twee Stepford-style message. So thank goodness the chic Space Invaders LED Doormat has dum-dum-dummed its way down to earth to inject a dash of quirky cool into the foot wiping arena.
A sensor turns the mat on when a visitor approaches.
As you can see, this frankly bizarre doormat features an animated LED digital display with a naughty little Space Invader on it. And it's not just any Space Invader; it's the appendage waggling, crab-like blighter that spawned a thousand playground impersonations back in the day. (Well it did at our school).
Guaranteed to put the willies up unwanted visitors and anyone else unacquainted with your utter geekiness, the Space Invaders LED Doormat is motion-sensitive, so whenever someone comes near, a glowing green invader moves back and forth across its stylish flat panel display. It's just as sinister, ominous and excruciatingly compelling as the game itself. Simply bung in four AAA batteries and you're away.
Requires 4x AAA batteries.
Crafted in industrial grade rubberised plastic, this generously proportioned (64cmx40cm) muck-muncher is certainly no slouch in the practicality department. But let's be honest, its true role lies in paying chic tribute to a global gaming phenomenon that has yet to be surpassed. Lara who?
Remember the game?
Short of answering the door dressed as a Romulan Daryl Hall tribute act, we can think of no better way to show your appreciation for 20th century high culture. So get ordering and wipe your feet in the face of a legend. Dum, dum, dum, dum!
