Part of sonoro's assault on your bedside table, the frustratingly-lower-case cubo is a clock/radio, CD player and iPod dock which can play back your mp3s as well as recharge your Apple PMP.
For those that travel quite often, those hotel alarm clocks don't always seem trustworthy enough. Generally, if you actually attempt using the foreign alarm clock you spend the rest of the night sweating that maybe you set it wrong. This Mini Alarm Clock is portable enough to take with you wherever you go.
Sadly, this device seems about 10 years too late, since most of us just use our cellphone for an alarm when we're away from home. However, it does also have a built in flashlight and sometimes those alarms in our phones malfunction a bit. That or you may not have an annoying enough ringtone to wake you up in the morning. So, if you need an alternative this little clock is just the thing.
It measures 1” x 3” x .75” therefore it would be great to just toss in your pocket or in an overnight bag. It also includes a calendar, stopwatch and timer. All together it costs $25.

Everyone needs that one room in their house that is dedicated to Space Invaders, of course, you'll need a seperate one for all the Mario Bros. accessories too. If you're going to dedicate any room to Space Invaders, I would suggest making it your bedroom just so you can have this bad boy lying next to your bed.
The Space Projection Alarm Clock is bound to be a hit with not only children but also all those harboring an inner Trekkie. The clock comes with an amber colored LED display and if you’re like me, you can always use another LED light! However, this clock is not limited to normal clock standards. This alarm clock comes with both time and space, and it puts them on your ceiling.
You’ll get your choice of three spaced themed images: full moon, starry sky and Saturn. The Space Projection Alarm Clock also comes equipped with three different alarm tones. You get your choice to be awakened by: transport, ping, or analyze. You can mix and match to get your full outer space experience.
I'm not quite sure how she engineered it - feminine wiles, I'll bet - but Julie Strietelmeier over at The Gadgeteer managed to get onto the very, very exclusive list of pre-release buyers of the endearing Chumby alarm-clock-cum-web-appliance, and she's been busy reviewing the little fella. In case you've forgotten, the Chumby is a compact touchscreen and Freescale processor with a couple of USB ports and a WiFi 'g' connection; in its most basic mode it works as an alarm clock, but delve deeper and you can use it for all sorts of real-time information. Think something like Ambient Devices range of wireless info-devices, only using WiFi.
You get roughly a minute and a half before you start losing some of your hearing, but at 113 decibels, if you don’t wake up before a minute and a half, you must be deaf already or dead. You can set the volume, but it maxes out at 113 decibels.
There is also a thing to vibrate the bed, I would assume you’d place the item beneath the mattress. Hopefully, for your neighbors sake, you can use that combination and wake up with a lower volume setting than 113 decibels.
