Time Tuner Alarm Clock looks like analog

Time Tuner Alarm Clock looks like analogHere’s a great design that can’t make up it’s mind as to whether it’s from the future or the past. We like it. The Time Tuner was created by Istanbul-based Antrepo Design Industry, who decided against the traditional digital clock face. It instead boasts an analog style that resembles a radio tuner.

It’s a lot like our favorite watches from Tokyoflash. The numbers along the length of the dial light-up to show you the hour. At the same time, an illuminated vertical red line moves across the dial for minutes. If you’re looking for a clock with style, look no further.

World Of Warcraft theme on BlackBerry

World Of Warcraft theme on BlackBerryWorld of Warcraft has a huge fanbase. The kinds of fans that are actually into tech as well. So it makes sense to have a World of Warcraft Today theme for the BlackBerry Curve. WoW fans can now get in-game graphics and icons on their communications devices, and probably helpful reminders about any guild raids they may have planned.

Just when you thought you could get a gamer out of the WoW universe for a few minutes, something like this comes along and pulls them back in. Sure, it’s not like you get to play on your iPhone, but the theme certainly gives BlackBerry that in game feel. Horde and Alliance themes can’t be far behind.

Star Wars clock has a starship on every hourThis fun clock features a different starship or fighter on every hour of the clock, handmade by Etsy seller YOUgNeek, and you can order a customized version. They used tiny action fleet Micro Machine battleships and vessels. The ships are specially re-finished in a pewter color scheme so that they’ll match the clock’s chrome finish.

If you want different Star Wars vehicles, just request them and have $89.99 ready. I’m guessing that a Star Trek version is coming soon.

Super Nintendo cartridge wallet

Super Nintendo cartridge walletI know what you’re thinking. That this would be large than your current wallet and make you sit all unlevel, like having George Costanza’s huge wallet. But who cares? This is an awesome geek wallet. We’ve seen a lot os SNES cartridge mods, but this is a first.

The SNES cartridge has been modded to hold a photo ID on the front, but it has also been gutted like a fish and outfitted with a hinge so that you have storage space on the inside. If that isn’t enough, it has an LED that can be turned on and off. It also plays game music and noises. Crazy, right? If you are just aching to hide your cash in one, you can build one of your very own.
