Okay, so next up is a vibrating ring that you wear in bed. But before you think we’re retreading some intimate old ground let me point out that it’s actually designed to gently wake you in the morning. Meng Fandi’s Ring concept is a discrete alarm clock that allows two people to be roused at different times without disturbing the lucky bugger still sleeping.
If you’re in the market for a more artistic clock as opposed to the normal kind with actual numbers, you might want to check this one out. It’s definitely enough to turn a few heads.
Clock kits are nothing new – in fact I remember producing a monstrosity of timekeeping while in high-school tech class, complete with “fashionable” bent plastic stand – but they tend to be analogue since it’s a lot easier to pop a few hands on a sprocket and slap an AA battery in round the back. Digital clocks are far rarer beasts, which is why it’s so nice to see Furni’s set and to hear that they’re promoting some ingenious thinking thanks to a design competition.

This is one of those things that you avoid looking at for fear that if you look at it wrong it will break. Although you can’t help but appreciate all the cool details within the clock.

Like any highly breakable clock it is pretty expensive. It is priced at right around $140.

I remember when they first announced that Daylight Savings Time was going to come three weeks early this year. I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to remember to change all of my clocks and update my computers to sync with the changes. Oh, and all of my relatives’ computers as well. The good thing is that it all paid off, we saved so much energy that it was all worthwhile.
I’m sure everyone has seen an episode of Star Trek before. Wouldn’t it be great to talk to your electronic gadgets and have them respond accordingly?
