Super Mario and Zelda Roombas: Beware the Goomba Roomba
February 26th, 2012
These custom Super Mario and Zelda themed Roomba covers are awesome and adorable. It’s like the games coming alive in your living room, while your place is simultaneously getting cleaned. How cool is that?
Sadly we can’t have these in our own homes, because these particular covers were created for last Fall’s SUPER iam8bit, a group art exhibition that showcased over 100 artists bringing to life their 80′s video game memories, and they’re already spoken for. These cute floor dwellers come from a collaboration between iRobot and fiber artist Kelice Penney.
There’s the Goomba from the Super Mario games, green and red Koopa shells from Super Mario Kart and even the Octorok from The Legend of Zelda. I wish I could have these guys roaming around my house. Maybe they will be mass-produced some day. What other spinny video game characters do you think would make a good Roomba?
