Available for preorder (expected delivery April/May) from Frontline Hobbies Australia for $29.99AU (approx $32US ).
This is another Kickstarter project. The Manifold Clock is a wall-mounted clock with a 30″ sweep. The hour and minute hands are joined with a flexible sheet that forms a changing 3-D shape. This “combination of simple mechanics and modern design is based on the mathematical notion of Riemann surfaces, derived from the log(z) function.” […]
We’ve had no shortage of Lego Star Wars-related clocks ’round these parts. So in honor of Father’s Day, check out this clock in the image of the “Dark Father” himself, the Lego Star Wars Darth Vader Minifigure Clock. Except that this “mini” figure is not so mini, as he’s a whopping 9+ inches of menacing […]
The aXbo Sleepphase Alarm Clock knows the perfect time to wake you up and now it knows just the right length of time to let you snooze when you press the snooze button. aXbo has launched a new feature called iSnooze which considers your sleep phases unlike snooze features that wake you at fixed intervals. […]
I like unusual clocks, but I still like to be able to tell time with a quick glance – even if it means I have to learn a pattern of lights or something. The Haoshi’s Merry-Go-Round Carousel Clock from A+R Store certainly is described by “unusual”, but I’m not sure that I’d ever be able […]
At one point or another, we all find ourselves in a situation where it would be beneficial to be a fly on the wall; whether it’s to figure out who it is that keeps stealing Netflix envelopes out of your mailbox, to keep an eye on the babysitter, or to reveal an even more unfortunate […]
It’s not uncommon to keep yourself up at night as you race through the mounting “to-do” lists in your mind…but why lose sleep over it? The Voice Interactive Personal Assistant from Hammacher Schlemmer lets you rest easy by recording and replaying up to six commands at the time of your choosing. This voice-activated alarm clock […]
Even though I hate getting up in the mornings to get ready for work, I have a thing for alarm clocks. It’s not that I enjoy hearing them go off in the morning as much as I just like finding clocks with cool and unique features to make the early morning wake ups a bit […]
I want one of these for my next trip. I always seem to get a hotel room that has the world’s crummiest and / or hardest to set alarm clock. The Voice Control Travel Alarm Clock from Moshi listens to your commands and sets the time and alarm time accordingly. You just press a button, […]
Wow, time flies! I reviewed the original Chumby almost two years ago and coming in early November we’ll get a chance to check out a brand new version: the chumby one clock radio. It looks like this new model is focusing more radio features as it has Pandora (and can access other internet radio stations) […]
The new iMM153 alarm clock from iLuv will not only wake you with your favorite iPod tunes, but will also shake the bed to wake even the sleepiest gadgeteers. It has several other features that interest me too, including a 10 level LCD dimmer control, dual alarms and four color choices. It will sell for […]
I know there are still many shopping days left before Christmas, but I’m trying to turn over a new leaf this year and actually get my shopping finished before 11:59pm on December 24th. This will be a first for me if I can actually do it. I figure there are other gadgeteers out there that have procrastination problems like I do, so I wanted to share a fun item that I came across recently. It’s the Tokibot Robot Clock from TOKYOBay.
As a person who is always looking for the ultimate alarm clock, I think I’ve found one that definitely comes closer than any product that I’ve tested so far. The people at American Innovative have taken their
Neverlate 7-day alarm clock, which I had reviewed 3 years ago and have updated it with new features to create a model called the Executive. This one has the ability to program up to 9 alarms per day. Wow!
A couple of years ago, I reviewed the Innovative Sleep Solutions Sleeptracker watch. This watch claimed to wake a person up at the optimal time in his or her sleep cycle, causing the person to awake refreshed and ready to face their day. Unfortunately, the watch didn’t work well for me and I have continued to bury my head under the covers every morning when my evil alarm clock rings. Since that review, I’ve kept an interest in these types of devices and was happy to try again when the folks at aXbo offered their Sleepphase alarm clock for review.
I work with Julie, and one afternoon we were talking about various iPod accessories. She’s never used anything
from the iLuv line of iPod accessories, so I volunteered to write a review. This is a review of the iLuv i177BLK.
This clock is also available in white.
