  • Down to the minute stocking stuffer: The Robot Alarm

    Some people pride themselves in their ornate and sophisticated plans and schedules they lay their lives out in. Such ways to approach the daily grind aren't necessarily bad, they just don't allow for any flexibility in my opinion. Others however find a kind of rush by "flying by the seat of their pants" into any and all situations. Which one are you? It really doesn't matter. The Robot Alarm knows no right or wrong. Whatever type of person you are, organized or completely chaotic is nothin...
  • Crack open a cold one without the lingering tuna smell: The Tuna Alarm Clock

    Be daring. Be different. Wake up in a whole new way with the Alarm Clock Tuna Can! If you crave individualism and long for expressing yourself in ways that are new and untapped by the masses, using a not so common alarm clock could be the first of many ways to shake up your life and those in it. For the first few seconds, an alarm clock modeled after a can of tune (WTF?) seems pretty funny and cool. Then you come to the realization that the clock is hidden under the lid. Granted you ca...
  • Let time crawl on by with the Cantena Chain Clock

    Flash drives often get the novelty treatment, turning into anything and everything you can think of. But they're not the only gadget capable of such unlimited transformations. Ordinary clocks are so...well...ordinary. And, if you're the nerd you claim to be, a simple clock just won't do. Andreas Dober may have just the thing to bring out the geeky with a touch of industrialized person inside of you. The clock above certainly has a different look about it. For one, it's got a fairly large c...
  • Washing machine 3-port USB hub card reader clock combo. Kitchen sink oddly MIA.

    Love to travel light and efficient? Have a knack for novelty flash drives/gadgets? Look no further than the Washing Machine 3-Port USB Hub Card Reader Clock Combo. Whew! It's quite a mouthful to say yet the entire package is roughly the size of a rubiks cube. Obviously this USB appendage won't wash your laundry. Why someone would want a miniature washing machine sitting next to their computer is beyond me. Hey, I won't judge you. We all have our crutches. Moving on, this buffet of words...
  • Start each morning peering into Emily’s eyes…

    There are many trials and tribulations in life that torture our souls and test our abilities as humans to traverse this little bluish marble (relative) floating in the vast expanse of the universe. Perhaps the greatest of these is the mundane task of waking up each morning. Normally, accurately reading the right time off of the alarm clock next to your bed (to those who actually have an alarm clock) takes a few seconds as your eyes are full of sleep, your brain process is running as slow as mo...
  • Measuring Tape Watch attempts to put size on time itself…

    While we have covered several different types of watches and clocks, with a few of those being rather simple to read, are a far cry from this latest freak show. The Measuring Tape Watch will force your eyes to do a full gymnastic routine just to get the current time. Hey, I'm not complaining as I'm up for a challenge at any time and this watch is cool as all get out. In case you were wondering, the big vertical line that is most prominent displays minutes with hours and seconds trailing und...
  • The Word Clock
    by Mike
    Posted September 28th, 2009 at 5:47 am
    Clocks have had the same general design and means of telling time for centuries. Sure they've progressed technologically from say a sun dial to a digital clock that displays numbers, but the overall concept is the same. Also true, attempts to radically change the way time is displayed such as some clocks which show the time in binary or with some other creative combination of fancy shapes and or characters are often hard to decipher. The Word Clock however is actually fairly easy to glean...
  • Steampunk Nixie Clock brings old school tech into the future for a hefty $
    by Mike
    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 5:42 am
    While I have generally not been to interested in the various Steampunk products that have been circulating around the inter webs the last several months, one in particular caught my eye just because of it's sheer beauty. The Steampunk + Nixie Clock is all about what geeks stand for. Antique and ancient designs come together in perfect unison giving 10 lucky (and deep pocketed) individuals a chance to own a true piece of geeky gadgetry. Constructed from vacuum tubes, this clock features an a...
  • Monitor Power consumption and time itself with the “Visual Voltage Clock”
    by Mike
    Posted September 10th, 2009 at 8:01 am
    From time to time, a I see a concept that is just plain cool. It may not be that high on the necessity list, but again, the sheer coolness instantly catapults it to the top of my list of many interests. So it is with that, that I bring you the concept of the day: Visual Voltage Clock. While the VVC will tell you the time just like any other earthly time telling device, the more intriguing and eye appealing feature is the ability to wireless monitor your electricity usage and display it on t...
  • The Peek Clock: Tell time like a geek.
    by Mike
    Posted September 8th, 2009 at 6:05 am
    Now I'm not really sure if geeks and gadget nerds have some weird fascination with time and clocks, but the sheer amount of clocks I see geared towards us more technically inclined few sure has me wondering. Moving on, the Peek Clock as it is so cleverly called gives time seekers a glance into the realm of time as the numbers "fade" in and out of existence. Looking at the picture above, one can see how minutes are also taken care of -- a simple white dot that travels around the face of the c...
  • Black & White Clock changes color, has independent power source for each number
    by Mike

    If you're looking for a way to spruce up that dilapidated looking excuse for an office you work in, or, you simply want to add a geeky flare to your living space, Vadim Kibardin has just the thing for you. His latest design, the "Black & White Clock" as it's called, is unique for the fact that each jump sized number is powered by it's own power source as well as containing it's own light sensor. Why the light sensor? You see, the title "Black & White" actually pertains to the color of whic...
  • Sleep through the alarm clock no more: Vibrating Alarm Clock Pillow
    by Mike
    Posted June 9th, 2009 at 5:45 am
    Heavy sleepers and those who generally aren't the best morning people have a harder time than most kicking the sandbags off of the eye lids and getting their carcasses out from underneath their nice, warm, comfortable bed. *Raises hand*. While there are many different types of alarm clocks you can buy that offer various sounds, colors, effects, or even alarm clocks that shoot of sound emitting projectiles forcing you to get up and find them, none of them will work quite like this next alarm...
