Clock with only Hands

vice versa
Vice Versa is a clock which only has hands. It is designed by Yiran Qian from China and was a shortlisted entry for the brightLED competition. As can be seen, the hands rotate around an axis like any other clock, but the numbers are built from LED’s on the end of the hands which gives them the appearance of being stationary as the hands move around. However, the clock is currently concept although it would be cool if it was actually built.

Nixie Tube Wrist Watch

Nixie Tube Digital Wrist Watch
The Nixie tube wrist watch is fairly simple in operation in that you press a button to illuminate the Nixie Tubes. It runs by a AA battery which can power the watch for 6 months if the time is viewed about a dozen times a day. Only 25 of these beautys were ever made. Time is kept by 2 watch type batteries which last around 6 months and are independent of the Nixie Tubes. It measures 2.75 x 1.5 x 1.2 inches and the tubes have a soft orange glow which the original Nixie Tubes had.

It costs $495 although they are now sold out a long time ago. I only just came across them today. Maybe you could try your chances on eBay 🙂

With a water powered alarm clock running on H2O, you have no worries about batteries running flat or the power going out. As long as you have a bit of water you will be able to wake up on time. The clocks sell for around $15 and are quite simple by design, but they do what they say. Each clock will last around 2 – 3 months on one top up.

Cool Looking Laser Clock

laser clock
When laser pens started becoming popular several years ago they were the thing to have. I remember getting one for 3 quid in Paris and it could project different shapes on to the wall depending what tiny lens was screwed on to the end of it. Now they have just introduced the Laser Clock which projects the actual time on to any surface. I have to admit that I do not know if its actually a laser clock, or just a bright red LED… either way its kind of cool.

You can pick one of the Laser Clocks up from Dynamism for $29.99.

Font Clock

Font Clock

21st Century 24 Hour Clock

The Font Clock has 12 different font with which it can tell the time. The inside mechanisms are set to display random, mixed up displays of time in different fonts. I wonder if they have windings in there… that would make for a cool excuse why you were late for work (not being able to tell the time).

Three sizes of the clock are available which are the G270 which measures 47.6 x 16.2 x 56.6 CM and this one displays the time, date and day of the week. The next size is the G225 which is slightly smaller measuring 42.2 x 11.8 x 31.8 CM and shows just the time and date. The smallest clock is the G100 which measures 29 x 11 x 14 CM and displays the time only.

Costing a hefty 810 GBP (about $1600) for the large version, I think I will be giving this one a miss. The clocks are available from thorstenvanelten.

RiteAlarm Clock Review

RiteAlarm Clock
From Rayna Creations comes this compact triple weekly, battery powered, alarm clock. What it means by triple weekly is that you have the option of pre setting the alarm clock for weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays individually. With your average alarm clock you need to manually adjust the alarm setting each time your routine changes, this beauty avoids such annoyance. For me on a personal level I am known to forget to change the settings and either wake the household up, or arrive late for appointments. On the outset it is quite basic looking, but what more do you need? If you are just looking for something that will do its job then this really does suit your needs every day of the week. The rest of the review is after the jump.

Daylight Projection Clock

Projection clocks are kind of ok but you really have to squint to be able to see the time. However, the Oregon Scientific Projection Clock is different. This clock’s projector is light sensative and can adjust accordingly to the various light levels that change through out the day. The clock looks quite cool and I wouldnt mind having this in the house. What ads more to it’s coolness is the ability to wave your hand at the sensor to change display settings and even turn off the alarm. That last part is not good for me though… I need the alarm to keep going 🙂
