Mr Bump Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2011

If you hate getting up in the morning(Don’t we all?) then this alarm clock is for you. The Mr Bump Alarm Clock may look like a South Park character, but he’s actually from the Mr Men series of children’s books. Apparently he bumps into things a lot.

As soon as the Mr Bump Alarm Clock goes off, just pick him up and throw him against the wall, and the alarm will stop. But hey that’s true of most alarm clocks if you throw it hard enough. Just $15.

Money Shredding Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on May 29th, 2011

Anyone who risks actual money being shredded in their alarm clock must have serious problems waking up. This should help give you incentive though. We’re not sure if this even exists or who created it, but it’s a neat idea.

The alarm clock starts shredding the bill that’s been inserted at the appointed time unless you wake up to stop it. How much would you pay to shred money while you sleep? I can’t see anyone buying this.

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2010

There have been many times that I wished I could yell at the clock to turn off the alarm, but sadly it doesn’t work that way.

Pure Twilight Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

The Pure Twilight Alarm Clock won’t wake you up by asking if you are team Jacob or team Edward, despite it’s name. But it is a dawn simulator lamp and digital radio in one. This alarm clock comes with several alarm settings. You can wake to a tone, a digital radio, an FM radio, or special alarm tones including “church bell” and “cockerel” or natural sounds like “wind chimes”, “dawn chorus” and “cicadas”.

They all sound annoying to me. This device also uses several bright LED lights to simulate a gentle sunrise before the alarm goes off, allowing you to slowly wake up instead of being jolted awake. It also has a PowerPort, which lets users charge their cell phones or PMPs.

Order in Chaos clock is hard to read and cool at the same time

Posted in Clocks by Shane McGlaun on September 27th, 2010

We have seen our share of strange clocks around there and typically, when we are talking timepieces they are wristwatches from Tokyoflash or some similar purveyor of odd watches. This wall clock is from a designer that was looking to make a statement about the order in chaos.

The clock has the numbers you expect to see around the clock face, but those numbers are broken into bits. As the hour gets closer, the numbers slowly take more from until you can read them. The single hand in the center of the clock is for minutes.

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

We love retro-style nixie tube clocks around here, but this one is unique. It has a special function that allows it to show words on its display. And yes, since its a four letter display, that’s going to mean a lot of dirty words.

This was designed by Pete Hand. The four letter word generator displays random words, changing the word every few seconds. It has 5,400 words in its dictionary you bad words should be kept to a minimum. Sadly.

If you like your clock to look like nature and have a thing for Woodpeckers, here’s a clock for you. It was designed by Natalie Duckett. The Woodpecker Alarm Clock has no clock face to tell the time. Instead it will measure how long you have been asleep and wake you up when you’ve had the right amount.

I don’t need to stinkin woodpecker clock to tell me when I’ve had enough sleep, but hey that’s just me. There are two alarms, one for the evening, telling you when to go to sleep, and one in the morning, telling you when to wake up.

Elements Water Powered Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2010

If you want to go green, but aren’t sure where to start, maybe you can start with this alarm clock. It doesn’t use any electricity and it’s not solar powered. Instead, it runs on the power of water.

In fact, this clock runs on water for 1.5 weeks without having to refill the water tubes. It would make a great conversation piece and you’ll know that you are doing your part for the environment. Just in case you forget to water it, it also has a backup cell battery.

Art Lebedev’s laser beam Reflectius clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2010

Is this thing a clock for a stealth fighter. Nope. Just the latest concept from the folks over at Art Lebedev. The design is awesome as usual. It’s a laser beam clock called Reflectius.

In all, sixty rotating mirrors redirect a beam of light just to tell you what time it is. We hope that this one gets produced for real, because frankly it’s the coolest clock we’ve seen in some time. Even if it would likely cost a lot of dough.

I don’t care what kind of alien you are, if you wake me up, you’re getting zapped by a laser gun. Unless you’re one of those grey abducting bastards, in which case I’ll probably get anal-probed and forget the whole thing. But anyway, the Alien Hunter alarm clock is designed to make waking up a game.

That alien coming out of the gooey egg wakes you up and you shoot it dead. Can you imagine this going on every day? That’s how aliens are, they never stop. The Alien Hunter alarm clock is priced at just $19. You can get a lot of kills for that price.
