If you like to keep up on all of the latest news, and your phone and computer just aren't good enough, maybe you need to get a clock at the side of your bed that will let you know what's happening on all of your favorite sites, courtesy of their RSS feed. That's exactly what the Excalibur Wireless News Ticker does, and thanks to the FCC, it will be making its way to the retail market some time in the near future.

As you can see from the image above, the Wireless News Ticker isn't meant to catch your eye with all of its flashy colors. The black-on-gray display will show you your local weather, the day (courtesy of the calendar), as well as the time. Underneath that, you'll be able to watch your RSS feed tick on by. You'll need four AA batteries to make sure you're wireless ticker is powered up nicely.

The wireless device can do this thanks to the USB dongle, which will stream your RSS feeds from your PC. You'll have to load up some software to make everything work properly, and right now it looks like it only supports Windows-based machines. And if you find you care more about your sports, or weather, then maybe the Weather Channel's or Fox Sport's branded versions of the device, which prioritize their particular focus of the news. Unfortunately, there's no word on a release date quite yet, nor how much this guy will cost.
