Nintendo has collaborated with iam8bit to produce a real-life replica of Luigi's supernatural sucker, the Poltergeist 5000 vacuum seen in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. The making-of video above shows the vacuum itself is functional, with a gutted vacuum motor housed within custom parts at its core.

iam8bit is a gaming art and exhibition company, with recent exhibitions highlighting the Street Fighter series and its American Icons series.
