What the hell is that?

Our range is growing constantly. However, some products will have you guessing what it is that you’re looking at. Today's example: a pixelated cube.

Black bloc protesters can breathe a sigh of relief: Galaxus is now offering handy bricks that are just the right shape and size to turn boring old shop windows into a beautiful pile of shards in a matter of seconds. Of course – or unfortunately – not. That would be awful. But what else could this thing be? A dice game that gets by without numbers and points? A Lego construct that’s slowly wasting away as an art object in the MoMA? A square head with a deformed face? A design chair that’s neither comfortable nor stylish? No, no, no…

I proudly present: Minecraft Redstone night light. Which kid doesn’t dream of falling asleep with the help of soothing Redstone red? I’m also impressed with how this thing is marketed: «It's guaranteed to keep the boogie oogie pigmen from coming out of your closet to murder you in your sleep.» Right, do you really think this bit of plastic can protect you? Are you kidding me? At least the engineers behind this cube put hard work into the technology: «No need to touch the Redstone all the time to activate light, just tap it one once for low light, a second time for medium, and a third time for bright. » Thanks but no thanks.

You don't have to dig all too deep to find Redstone ore. And it's definitely worth it; Redstone is the only ore that activates light when you tap it.

When I'm not stuffing my face with sweets, you'll catch me running around in the gym hall. I’m a passionate floorball player and coach. On rainy days, I tinker with my homebuilt PCs, robots or other gadgets. Music is always my trusted companion. I also enjoy tackling hilly terrain on my road bike and criss-crossing the country on my cross-country skis.
