Are you looking for a fun way to spruce up the housekeeping chores in your home, especially so when you own the iRobot vacuum cleaner? At the Super iam8bit art exhibition, it seems that the iRobot vacuum cleaner has received an 8-bit makeover that boasted hundreds of works inspired by retro video games. Artist Kelice Penney decided to come up with such colorful covers that were inspired by different characters from the Nintendo world, including the much stomped upon Goomba from Super Mario Bros., the rock-spitting Octorok from The Legend of Zelda, and of course, the classic weaponized turtle shells from Super Mario Kart.
It does seem as though the iRobot vacuum cleaner’s erratic movements suit the aimless game characters, but it is rather unfortunate that such vacuum cleaner covers are not going to enter mass production, so if you want one of these puppies, you will have to just find out how to make one of these (or more) for yourself.
