Novel Alarm Clock

Ball Clock
This may look like a pretty ordinary bedside alarm clock but it does have one pretty unique feature. See that metallic sphere on the top, it’s not just there for decoration that ball is actually the radio station selector!

You program the stations as you would with a conventional radio but to switch stations instead of pressing a button you roll the ball into one of the nine indentations at the top of the device. Some may think this is somewhat pointless but I reckon it’s a cool, different and miles more fun than boring conventional buttons.

Available from Uncommon Goods for $60.

  1. I have this alarm clock. I’m very disappointed with it. The controls are very finicky and don’t work consistantly. Also, the light is VERY weak rendering it almost useless at night to see what time it is. Cool looking clock…ALMOST a great idea. Bad implementation.
