Bring Tim! Tells You Exactly How Much Money was Just Wasted in That Meeting You Sat in
Given the fact that I’ve probably spent at least a gazillion hours in my professional careers sitting in mind-numbing meetings, this device is definitely something that I need. The $25 Bring Tim! timer should be standard issue in every corporate conference room.

Darth Vader Desk Clock: Force Alarm
You think the Dark Lord will help you know what time it is? FOOL! His Force Pose will distract you for hours on end! And when you finally break free of his spell, you’ll have to squint real hard to read the tiny LCD display with the current time on it.

Reflectius Art Lebedev Clock: 60 Mirrors + 1 Laser
When I first saw the Reflectius Clock by Art Lebedev, I thought that it was simply using reflections, but that’s not the whole story. This wild concept clock uses 60 mirrors and a single laser to display the time.

Super Mario Bros. Furniture Would Make Any Fan Jump for Joy

Super Mario Bros. Furniture Would Make Any Fan Jump for Joy
Neatoramanaut Dennis shared pics of Super Mario-themed shelves that he and his girlfriend Judith put together for their apartment. Actually Judith did almost everything. And Mama Mia, what a piece of woodwork: The shelves and cloud are all made of wood, while the mushroom, Mario and Luigi figures were store bought; naturally, the princess is missing.

Strobeshnik Hard Drive Clock Tells Time Perfectly Once It Spins Up to Speed

Strobeshnik Hard Drive Clock Tells Time Perfectly Once It Spins Up to Speed
Check out this cool clock made from an old hard drive. Built by modder Svofski, the clock tells time on the face of the hard drive’s rapidly spinning platter. The Strobeshnik hard drive clock uses a stroboscopic effect to make it look like the numbers of the clock are persistent on the face of the drive platter – which Svofski galvanically etched to make the cool cutout numbers.

Segmentus is Neither a Roman Torture Device Nor a Transformer

Segmentus is Neither a Roman Torture Device Nor a Transformer
When I was a kid, my grandmother had this matchstick plaque hanging in her kitchen. I looked at the thing for a while once trying to figure out what exactly it said. As it turns out the thing said “Jesus” you just had to look really hard to see the word in with the pattern the matchsticks made.

Monochron Pong Clock is a Lot Geekier Than It Looks Like

Monochron Pong Clock is a Lot Geekier Than It Looks Like
Sander Mulder made a Pong Clock way back in 2005, but Limor Fried of Adafruit Industries ups the ante with the Monochron, a Pong-themed clock for tinkerers. If you want to have one you better know how to solder, because the Monochron will be delivered to you unassembled, and by that I mean you’ll have to install all the resistors and capacitors yourself.

Redundant Clock: Match the Big Hands With the Little Hands

Redundant Clock: Match the Big Hands With the Little Hands
Made by Ji Lee, the Redundant Clock is the exact opposite of math clocks: When the big hand is pointing there and the little hand is pointing there, it’s big hand pointing there and little hand pointing there o’clock.

Sleep Remaining Indicator: Neither an Alarm Nor a Clock, but It Involves Legos and a Laser So Who Cares?

Sleep Remaining Indicator: Neither an Alarm Nor a Clock, but It Involves Legos and a Laser So Who Cares?
So what is it really? It is exactly what it says it is. Made by Nirav Patel, the Sleep Remaining Indicator is a homemade gadget that indicates how long you have to sleep by shining a laser beam on the ceiling (or I guess wherever you want it to shine).

Marc Newson’S Atmos 566 Clock Could Run Forever

Marc Newson’S Atmos 566 Clock Could Run Forever
Granted, this isn’t a perpetual motion machine, but it is expensive and pretty close, so there ya go! This Jaeger-LeCoultre Atmos clock will stand the test of time without ever losing a beat! Just a quick thought, doesn’t this contradict the second law of thermodynamics?

Real Time Grandfather Clock Made by a Man Who’s Gone Cuckoo

Real Time Grandfather Clock Made by a Man Who’s Gone Cuckoo
Nah, just kidding. Maarten Baas isn’t crazy, just an artist. Baas made this weird, funny, and hypnotizing grandfather clock as part of his REAL TIME exhibit shown last year in Milan, Italy. The clock has no clockwork, no clock guts whatsoever.

Arduino Weather Clock Tells the Temperature, Not the Time

Arduino Weather Clock Tells the Temperature, Not the Time
This kind of reminds me of the Weasley clock that was in Harry Potter, but there’s actually more to it than just the time. It can actually show you what the weather is like outside. I love how this display is retro and analog.

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince
Designer Ryan McElhinney must be a fan of Katamari Damacy; some of his lovely creations are basically huge mishmashes of toys that form what would mundane or traditional household fixtures, like this grandfather clock. McElhinney uses recycled toys for his creations, bonded together (with a katamari?)

Magnetic Tape Clock: Timeless and Attractive

Etsy seller/green craftster pixelthis uses recycled parts to make timepieces. While he mostly uses discarded hard disk drives, this gem of a clock features a 7″ magnetic tape reel, giving it a simple yet classy look.

Seiko’S Pyramidtalk Makes a Comeback

Seiko’S Pyramidtalk Makes a Comeback
For some reason, Seiko decided to reissue this clock, which was last popular when Ronald Reagan was President. You got to admit though, there is something about it. This talking pyramid clock was all the rage back in 1984 when it was released.
