Space Invaders never seems to get old, as proven by this clock app and game for iOS devices. Space Timeders will let you waste good time before going to bed. The game is fun and the idea is pretty cool.
I really like the design of this alarm clock, based on the Jedi training remote Luke Skywalker used in the original Star Wars. It really does look like it. But instead of firing sparks of electricity at your lightsaber, this orb is designed to wake Jedi younglings from their slumber.
Everyone knows that time is supposed to be linear (at least the way that we experience it), but our usual representation is circular, since the watch face and clock face were designed for the convenience of returning their hands to the 12 o’clock position, not necessarily usability.
Alarms clocks are a dime a dozen, but this beautiful bedside clock aims to shake things up a bit. Designed and engineered by Paul Sammut, the Nixie Ramos is part of a Kickstarter project featuring two decidedly different versions of the same clock.
Aside from the usual functions of an alarm clock – telling the time, making you irritated first thing in the morning – the Napper has a one-press nap alarm mode. Just press any of the three nap buttons to set an alarm – the number on top indicates the duration of the countdown in minutes.
Highly-organized (or OC) people usually have two staples on their office tables/bedside tables/mantles: a clock and a calendar. You usually need both in order to tell the time and determine what date and day today is; it can’t be one or the other because that’s just plain incomplete.
I shared a room with my two sisters when we were growing up, so it’s a given that we spent a lot of time together – either getting along or fighting. And one thing that always made us fight were alarm clocks.
Sometimes a watch looks so cool that it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t really serve its originally intended purpose. I’d have to say this is one of those times. The guys at high-end French watchmaker Bell & Ross have created a watch that barely tells time, but looks amazing doing it.
Did you ever think that a modern clock would use shadows to tell the time? This timepiece reminds me of sundials, but it’s definitely the high-tech version, using a plethora of LED lights to showcase the time.

As much as we wish it did, the Portal Companion Cube Clock does not get its energy from a GLaDOS potato.
Programmer/Dad/Casual Mindstormer Hans Andersson has earned a reputation on the mean and geeky streets of the Internets as a LEGO Mindstorms master. His first two Mindstorms creations were machines capable of solving a Rubik’s Cube and Sudoku.
