You’ve probably seen one of those clocks that use persistance of vision to make the time display appear to float in the air above the clock, right? The iXP3 Internet Message Clock from Fascinations takes those clocks to a new level. In addition to displaying the time, date, and temperature, the iXP3 can display news, sports scores, stock quotes, SMS text messages and entertainment updates via RSS and Twitter. You can also send messages directly to the clock through email or through the myixp3.com website. There is no subscription service required – you just plug the clock into power and connect it to the internet with the included network cable (or with the optional network bridge, if you need one). The iXP3 Internet Message Clock is available from InnovaToys for $99.95 – Fascinations’ online retailer – or from other online or brick-and-mortar stores.
