    Know when it's time to wake up, analog style

    Finding it too easy to read your current alarm clock? Check out the new “Time Tuner” from ATREP04 design, based out of Constantinople Istanbul. Instead of using something like a numerical display, the Time Tuner uses a analog radio tuner, with a glowing light bar to indicate the hour and the minute. Despite the analog theme, the alarm clock will either wake you with an old school buzz… Read More

    Japanese alarm clock wakes up heavy sleepers with helicopter engine sound

    Tokyo-based Toyo Trading [JP] is selling an alarm clock in the shape of a helicopter, which wakes up users with a tricky mechanism. Unfortunately, the device is Japan-only at this point.

The battery-powered clock can only… Read More

    TOKYObay Robots for your office cubicle

    What we have here is a heavy, metal, red robot alarm clock. He/she/it sits amongst my other cubicle decorations: two Kid Robot Munny dolls, Wowwee Chatterbot (I like bulldogs), and skull Pez dispenser. You can choose from three models with varying colors. The one I have is $48. I like the squatty looking one. It’s an alarm clock robot with moving legs, arms and head. That is all. Read More

    Wake-up Light simulates rising sun to wake you up gently

    If you don’t like the idea of shooting your alarm clock, the new version of the Philips Wake-up Light might be for you. Like any other alarm clock, you set the time at which you want to be woken up. 30 minutes before that time arrives, however, the Wake-up Light starts to gently glow. As the minutes pass, the light gets brighter, simulating the rising sun, so that when the designated time… Read More

    Mustek announces digital photo frame that doubles as an alarm clock and so much more

    I hate my alarm clock as I’m sure most of you do too. I’m still not sold on digital photo frames and I think it’s safe to say most you aren’t either. I only know one person who owns one. But what would you say to a digital photo frame that’s also an alarm clock? What if it had a calendar, indoor temperature gauge and MP3 player? I sure as heck would want one of those. Read More
