This alarm clock looks exactly like the Game Boy you used to play on the go. It even has working buttons. The only difference is that instead of playing classic games, this version is all about waking you up in the morning.
This officially-licensed Nintendo Game Boy alarm clock plays the Super Mario Land theme when the alarm goes off. This thing has a lot more personality, not to mention nostalgia, compared to waking up with your smartphone.
I think there have been other Game Boy clocks, but this one has all of the right details. The only thing I would change (only because I’m a nerd) is that it needs to have little cartridges that change the wake-up sounds. A Legend of Zelda cart with that theme, Tetris for that one, and so on. That way you keep the nerds coming back for more, having to buy new cartridges all the time. I’m still buying this – I just can’t help wanting more.
It’s just $36.99 with free shipping over at Merchoid. The clock is expected to ship on March 30th, but pre-order quantities are limited so you better get one while you can.
