Clap Or Tap Block Clock – either way, it will be silenced

Getting enough sleep is one thing – but to be able to wake up in the morning is another, especially when you have not obtained the right amount of sleep in the night before, hence leaving you with extremely heavy eyelids that are reluctant to open up the next day. Well, the right kind of alarm clock – one that gives out an almighty din would definitely be worth checking out, and even more so if it is difficult to shut off. We have seen some cool alarm clocks in the past, and this time around, here is the $79.95 Clap Or Tap Block Clock.

Specially disguised to resemble that of a simple block of wood, this is a cordless digital clock which will show off the time whenever you activate it. How does the Clap Or Tap Block Clock get activated? The answers are in the name itself – you can rely on touch, or to clap your hands, which would result in sound. This is perfect for those who find that the constant glare of an ordinary clock could prove to be a stumbling block when it comes to sleep, while the wood cuboid’s innocuous exterior would be able to conceal its true purpose nicely. Time is shown in large, easy-to-read blue LED numerals, and you can set it to alternate between the time, date, and room temperature, or simply to show off the current time only. There are three separate alarms and the all important snooze function to boot.

The World Clock shows the past, present, and future happening simultaneously

Time is a major point of interest for us. We have meetings and gatherings to attend, and that keeps us on a strict schedule. Of course, the entire world does not run on the same time as you. Some places are many hours ahead or behind, and should you work internationally it’s part of your job to keep track of who is where and when. While your phone has a world clock that you can open, it can take a while for you to find the exact time zone you’re looking for.

It seems easier to keep a clock on your desk that will tell you when in the world another time zone is. The 11+ World Clock is a clock that displays multiple time zones at once. There is a rolling mechanism that will change every time you wheel it towards another city, which is displayed all along the outside circle. Moving it in this fashion will change the noon position while the hands stay in place, giving you the new time with little more than a flick of your wrist.

When you’re done looking at the time in another part of the world, simply release the clock and the counterweight will roll it back to what is set at your home time zone. This will cost you $50 unless you have a MoMa membership, in which case this would cost you $45. While it would certainly be useful in a professional setting, it would also be quite helpful for those who have family sprinkled all over the world and want to do phone or Skype calls at an appropriate hour for both sides.

Watch and Butane Lighter Combination – What could go wrong?

Smoking is not an admirable habit. While it has acquired a status of being “cool” by the mere fact that it is inaccessible to those beneath a certain age, it ends up being an unwanted authority over your life after prolonged use. It is now seen as far more socially acceptable to smoke pipes or cigars on special occasions. If however, this vice is more part of your everyday and you have no intention of stopping any time soon, then you are likely somewhat regularly in need of a lighter.

If you’d rather use something with a little more panache than a gas station lighter or Zippo, then this Novelty Butane Cigarette Lighter Watch might be of interest to you. It is exactly what it says, functioning both as a timepiece to wear on your wrist, and a butane watch that can light up your smoke. The strap is made of rubber, which is likely to offset the heat transfer. While this aspect may not look very appealing in contrast to the metal and quartz face, it is surely better than giving yourself a serious burn.

The strap is adjustable to fit a variety of wrists and there are no alternative sizes. This will only cost you around $9, so you can imagine how the quality would stack up against something like a Tokyoflash watch. While this will certainly get some comments, make sure you’re overly conscious of long sleeves lest you find yourself in a toasty accident.

Activity Tracking Dress Watch does more than tell the time

Most of the time, we would see watches as devices that have only one function – to tell the time. Sure, some of them do come with built-in alarm and all that, but it is still primed to let you know what time of the day it is. While some other watches have started to offer more than just that, those of you who would like to keep track of how much movement you make each day without having to wear a fitness band of sorts, can rely on the $99.95 Activity Tracking Dress Watch.

This will be different from majority of the pedometer watches out there which do not betray their added functionality, that is, they resemble sports watches. This Activity Tracking Dress Watch will be different – it is meant to be worn with business attire, while it goes about its task in a discreet manner, jotting down information such as the number of steps taken, distance, time spent walking, and calories burned. All of those will remain hidden – at least until you press a button, and it will make an appearance digitally, in order to preserve the watch’s formal appearance. Capable of recording up to a week’s worth of activity, the advanced accelerometer can tell the difference between actual steps taken and movements such as waving your hand or standing up, resulting in accurate step counts.

Iconoclock tells the time as it is

We are well aware that there are many icons out there on our devices – ranging from tablets to smartphones, and who would have thought that such a few pixels are able to convey a straightforward message without any kind of misinterpretation? Well, since we are familiar with icons, why not take the step to incorporate those into a regular wall clock? After all, it is the new year, and it is also about time (pardon the pun) to keep up with the times by going through a minor remodeling of home or office – and changing the clock could be a good place to start. Enter the $74.95 Iconoclock, which is a wall clock that points out each hour with approximations of familiar app icons.

Obviously inspired by the iPhone’s glass touchscreen display, this timepiece would mark the Noon hour with an email app icon that depicts a dozen messages in the inbox, while the music app’s triplet note icon would mean it is 3 o’clock at that point in time. As for 9 o’clock, you can tell it is that time thanks to the “gears” of a settings app icon. Powered by a single AA battery, its crystal face delivers a similar jet black yet glossy background as the ubiquitous smartphone.

Special Operations Sports Watch: No tests for you to past to wear this one

Being in a special operations unit would more often than not require you to be extremely fit – not to mention being a deadly, walking weapon. After all, isn’t this what most movies convey to us? All of those action movies where a single one man operation with a past who wants to break it all could not leave a particular situation of injustice alone, or perhaps are out for revenge – and they hit back – with a vengeance, killing an entire army’s worth of highly trained professionals as well. If you have delusions of grandeur of being in such a position after shows like The Equalizer, John Wick or the Taken series, the perhaps picking up the $299.95 Special Operations Sports Watch might help you feel better.

This special timepiece is extremely durable, being specially engineered to endure the demands of military field personnel while still serving the weekend warrior. It is made by a manufacturer of tactical military watches whose design collaborations have included U.S. Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs, where it comes encased in a solid block of 316L stainless steel with a rubber strap that endures rain, knocks, and sweat. The crown will screw down and locks with a double O-ring, delivering water resistance to 660′, while there is a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective crystal that protects its precise quartz movement. It sports luminous tritium-powered hands that deliver easy viewing of the brass 12- and 24-hour dial during an evening run. The one thing this sports watch won’t do is give you automatic deadly martial arts skills.

The 24th Century Time Machine certainly looks the part

Well, well, what can we say? Clocks are pretty much a commonplace item at any home or office, but then again there are some of us out there who love the flamboyant – basically, anything that is able to look different and work in a manner that is not normal at all, and yet gets the job done, in order to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Well, no regular clock would do if you are oozing with cash, as the $31,000 24th Century Time Machine will surely be something that only a rare few are able to afford, taking into consideration the rather hefty price tag attached to it in the first place.

Of course, no one can really travel through time – it is just the stuff of fiction and a figment of the imagination, but one can certainly dream, right? At the end of the day, the 24th Century Time Machine is an exquisite expression of horological artistry, where it has been expertly crafted in Delémont, Switzerland by L’Epee, the country’s last remaining specialized maker of high-end timepieces. This will be a manually wound machine that masterfully depicts the time on a central dome, sporting separate hands that sweep its contours to mark the hours and minutes.

There will be twin “laser cannons” that deploy once every 20 seconds beneath the main dome, where it functions as a double retrograde seconds complication, while there is a different dome which will let you know just how much juice it has left of its 40-day capacity via the use of decreasing bars, which happen to be flanked by a radar dish that rotates 270°.

Five main-spring barrels alongside an escapement platform which have been horizontally oriented in this application would be what provides a level of impeccable timekeeping unlike what you have ever seen before. It is made out of stainless steel and palladium-treated brass for that added touch of luxury and class. At the end of the day, this certainly looks like a clock that hails from 2300 A.D. onward.

The Kisai Online Wood LCD Watch merges technology and nature

We love the odd, crazy and cool gadgets that come into existence. Every day there is something new on the horizon, challenging what we think is innovative or unique. Tokyoflash has certainly created a name for themselves in the watch market by making watches we’ve never seen before. They seem to be constantly reinventing the wheel by telling time in ways we always think are too difficult to read at first.

While the Kisai Online has been in existence for some time, it has resurfaced anew in this limited edition Wood version. This gives you a cryptic time display made up of vertical lines that in this wooden setting almost appear to look like tree bark. The wooden wrist strap is surprisingly lightweight, and this comes in two styles with either sandalwood or maple with dark sandalwood lines.

There are two modes in which you can view the time on the “always on” display. One is the cryptic mode, in which it will take some time to get used to seeing the slightly altered numbers, and the reveal mode where the numbers are easier to read, though still a bit warped. There is an animation mode that will come on every two seconds, but it can be turned off if you so desire. There are blue, natural, and red LCD screen options with the sandalwood or maple options to choose from at a price point of $99.

Available for purchase on Tokyoflash

Topsy Turvy Alarm Clock loves being flipped

Not all alarm clocks are created equal, this is for sure. Well, you can always settle for the regular, old school din that the metal hammer of the alarm clock emits each time it strikes the bell, and turning that off is as simple as flipping a switch behind. How about some of the more modern digital ones, where you slam a relatively large button (as opposed to the rest that dot the alarm clock itself) in order to silence it or send it to snooze mode? Here is a different take with the $44.95 Topsy Turvy Alarm Clock.

The Topsy Turvy Alarm Clock happens to be a timepiece which would see its numbers reorient as well as alarm shut off whenever it is flipped over, in the same manner as that of grilling a burger patty, I suppose. Definitely far more civilized, thanks to its rather innovative product design, allowing this timepiece to do away with the kind of groggy fumbling associated with those who have been rudely awakened from their forty winks. When the side marked “on” is up, the alarm is set and its time is shown in the corner of the display, and in order to keep the alarm quiet, all that you need to do is to flip the clock over in order for the “off” side to face up. There will also be numbers in the digital display that perform a 180° turn so that it will appear the right side up. It runs on AAA batteries, and tapping the clock briefly illuminates the screen while giving you another eight minutes of snooze time.

Hourglass Desk Clock tells the time in style

Having a clock or a timepiece is one thing, but being able to have that very timepiece complement the rest of your home’s decoration is another. It will require a mind of art that not too many people possess, and if you would want something that can spruce up your home, then might we suggest the $56 Hourglass Desk Clock. The name of this particular timepiece gives the game away, where it will merge both modern style alongside traditional utility. Definitely one of the more unique desk clock designs that we have come across so far, and we do have our fair share of special candidates which we have seen in the past.

As a result, you end up with an entirely new twist on the classic hourglass. Your eyes will not miss the hours as well as minutes that are displayed clearly on this particularly unique plastic and metal clock. At the bottom would see the hours being shown off, while minutes and seconds will be displayed on top. As for the red line, it will point out the current hour (bottom) and minute (top). It will work even in the event of a zombie apocalypse, since it will not run on AC power, but rather, would “survive” on a sole AA battery.
