The Pin Clock

Posted in Clocks,Home by Darrin Olson on November 21st, 2006

Pin ClockThis is a pretty novel idea for a “digital” clock. The Pin Clock looks a lot like that pin game you may have played with as a kid, where you can put the pins on your face and they take it’s shape.

In this case, the pins are pushed out or pulled in to take the shape of the numbers to represent the current time. As the minutes change, the pins make sounds as the move in and out like the old sound of time changes on the board at the train station. The web …

Atomic Pinball Clock

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

A guy named Mark Gibson has put an atomic clock inside a pinball machine, making one of the coolest clocks ever. It’s a WWVB atomic clock using a pinball machine marquee. What used to be the score is now the time, with atomic clock accuracy.

The downside is that it makes a lot of noise. If you want to build one, Mark has detailed instructions for building the atomic pinball clock here. It is a difficult build, but worth it.

Retro Pin Art clockCheck out this retro Pin Art Clock. 3000 pins will tell you the time. It’s like you have Pinhead from Hellraiser trapped in a box and he’s forced to rear his head to tell you what time it is.

“Inspired by the popular Pin Art toy that uses moving pins to form the impression of one’s hand, this creation makes watching the clock a mesmerizing experience. The minutes click ahead with a sound that evokes the classic flip of the numbers at airports or train stations, combining aural ambience with visual style.”

Royal College of Art graduate Ki Hyun Kim must really like coffee. He designed the Alternative Alarm Clock, which allows you to wake up to the smell of coffee instead of beeping sounds that make you want to throw your clock.

The Alternative Alarm Clock is also a combination alarm/power strip, allowing you to plug in any electrical device you want like a lamp or a radio. When the alarm is activated, the electric outlet supplies power to the electrical devices.

Motorola Xoom Gets Overclocked To 1.6GHz

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2011

Overclocking is the computer geek equivalent to souping up a Hot-Rod. Both go fast, but in different ways. A few months back we heard that the new Motorola Xoom Android Honeycomb tablet had been overclocked to 1.5GHz, and now someone has broke that threshold, with a speed of 1.6GHz.

The guys over at the XDA are the ones who did it. They have managed to get the Xoom’s processor up to 1.6GHz and guess what. That extra clock speed helped the Xoom score over 4000 in the Quadrant benchmark app, compared to around 1500 in the Xoom with its standard clock speed. Yeah. Not a bad boost at all.

The Shining Cuckoo Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

Cuckoo clocks are fun and amusing. At least they used to be. Not anymore. Not with this Cuckoo clock. This clock is all about the creepiness. It’s a miniature diorama of the “Heeere’s Johnny!” scene from The Shining. No little Cuckoo bird here, though.

Instead you get Jack Nicholson breaking through the door saying “Heeere’s Johnny!”. Shelly Duvall is also there, with a bad case of buttaface, letting out a scream. This happens every hour until you never want to see the movie again.

Aspiral Analog Clocks trade hands for balls

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2010

Check out these awesome and retro Aspiral Clocks. They have no hands or digital displays. Instead they use balls to tell time in an ingeniously simple design.

The clock spins, moving the ball through the spiral. Every twelve hours the ball disappears in a hole at the center. Sadly at $545, it won’t end up in many homes. Still, it’s a unique way to tell time with some style and movement.

Insignia Dual Alarm Clock Radio with Photo Display

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

Everybody hates alarm clocks. So most of us wouldn’t pay $49.99 for an alarm clock. But what if it had the ability to display pictures, a media card reader and 128MB of internal memory? That might be worth the money.

The Insignia Dual Alarm Clock Radio does just that while still keeping up with its alarm clock duties. It will display digital pictures on its 3.5-inch display. The only thing missing is an audio-in jack to turn it into a speaker. That would have really sold me.

Posted in Clocks by Shane McGlaun on June 23rd, 2009

iluvbedshaker-sbI have never been one to have a hard time getting up in the morning. My alarm goes off to music and I am up and about my day. My wife on the other hand could sleep through a tornado and never wake up. Her alarm usually wakes me up and then I have to shake her awake to get her to turn it off.

If you are the sort that needs more than a buzzer or music to wake up, the new iLuv iMM153 alarm clock with bed shaker for iPod may be just what you need. The clock supports all dockable iPods and has a 3.5mm auxiliary jack for the devices that can’t be docked.

Word Clock tells time, with words

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2009

Word Clock tells time, with wordsMost clocks use numbers obviously. But if you want to be different, in a snooty, “I’m better than you and more literate”, kind of way, this is the clock for you. So wordy, it should have been built into the Kindle. It’s shaped like a baton with a clear acrylic tube, and spells out the time using fancy word-tech.

Nice design that offers more casual timekeeping. It was created by designers Hans Muller and Hans van Dongen. Since it’s 24-inches long, it can therefore be used as a weapon should someone break into your home. At which time you would stand over the bloodied attacker and say something cool like, “It’s half past me breaking your ass and a quarter to your balls.” This is a must have time-piece.
