The Bomba Alarm Clock… cutting-edge nostalgy!
We’ve all seen a flip clock; on a desk, in a movie… those plain wooden or plasticky boxes with a lit ‘display’. The display was actually a set of little plates that moved every 1,10 or 60 minutes, showing the time.
Dutch designer Will van den Vos thought that it was time to refresh it a little, and came to a good idea. The result? cool, desirable, visible if only in the rest of this entry.
Looks pretty stunning, doesn’t it?
What the designer chose to do here was to remove the boring housing. Do you think he did well? i sure do!
Add the fact that it also shows the date AND can wake you up in the morning only makes it even more desirable.
In order to put some emphasis on the special design of this device,the designer added a couple of white and blue LED’s. They give it a nice look in darkness and not only, and also serve as a ‘screen’ light.
