Mod – Hard drive clock

Mod – Hard drive clock

We see a lot of strange and geeky clocks around here. Most of them are just silly or cheesy. Ones that use PC parts generally just use them as a face with the regular clock mechanism ticking around it. Well this clock hack is certainly one of the most original, as it uses the platter and needle from the hard drive to tell you the time.

Batman Collapsible Desk Clock

Batman Collapsible Desk Clock

Even we adults need their toys, we just call them desktop accessories as time goes on. This Batman Collapsible Desk Clock is sleek enough to almost look grown up, almost.

The Sparkly CD Clock

Recycled gadgets are always a nice thing to add to any home especially if they are done well and really look cool. This Sparkly CD Clock is made up of old used CDs and turned into these chic clocks.

Tubes Clock poorly impersonates Nixie tube clock

Tubes Clock poorly impersonates Nixie tube clock

I'm sure that you've seen those cool clocks made from Nixie tubes before. They look really cool, but unfortunately they're expensive and you run the risk of the vacuum tubes burning out, which can be a real pain. Here's a cool clock that simulates the look with LED lights.

The “Will Return” Clock

The “Will Return” Clock

This clock adds a bit of fun to the classic “Will Return” sign. If you aren't paying attention, you don't really even notice it's atually a clock.

Yamanote Alarm Clock – Where’s that train again?

Yamanote Alarm Clock – Where’s that train again?

One thing I love about living where I do, is that I can either walk or drive anywhere that I need to go. I used to live in one of the Chicago burbs, so I know what it's like trying to hurry down to the train station to get somewhere on time. Over in Tokyo there are a lot of people that have to catch the train, and now there's an alarm clock that will make sure you never miss it again.

The Soup Can Clock

The Soup Can Clock

Need a new clock just for the kitchen? This Soup Can Clock could be just the thing to hang up and it's likely to attract all kinds of attention.

I can't decide if this clock is so original it's chic or if it's just what you hang next to your redneck wind chime (you know, the one with a bunch of empty beer cans). It is pretty cool that it is handmade and that the can is recycled.

The artist Steve Buss is selling it for only $26. I suppose since an artist made it, that qualifies it as chic.

Vibrating Ring arouses you in the morning

Vibrating Ring arouses you in the morning

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.
