    This is Ferrolic, a clock/visual display capable of showing the time, text, or morphing shapes by using magnets to manipulate drops of ferro-fluid. It is mesmerizing to watch and I want one very badly but they only made 24 of them and they all cost a fortune but the company hi... / Continue →

    This is the Geek Nerd Clock available from Etsy seller LetterThings ($23). The numbers have been replaced with geeky references to the number that should be there. They blew the opportunity to use a reference to Battlestar Galactica's Number Six for 6 o'clock though. Also, 1... / Continue →

    This is the $36,000 robotic desk clock available from MB&F. The piece is limited to 99 pieces, or $3,560,000 in gross profit provided they sell them all. For reference, that is more than I would make in my entire life if I lived to be 800. Did I mention it just tells time? ... / Continue →

    The Whiteboard Clock is the brainchild of Zurich engineer Maurice Bos and uses a robotic hand to erase the time and rewrite it every five minutes. Pretty cool, but when I read about a clock that ERASES TIME, I expected to see something a little more impressive. Like a cross b... / Continue →

    This is the clock at the Ham Yard Hotel in London. It has 135 smaller clocks synchronized to create mesmerizing geometric patterns in between displaying the time in big block numbers. I could watch it all day. Paint drying and grass growing too. I'm a simple man. "You're b... / Continue →

    This is a homemade money shredding alarm clock (previously: a conceptual one). After the alarm goes off you have ten seconds to disable it before the thing starts eating your money. I mean, provided you were actually foolish enough to put money in it in the first place. I'd ... / Continue →

    Apple, a company best known for refusing to replace the glass on my iPhone for free despite me yelling, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? DO YOU? I'M THE PRESIDENT'S SON!" several times on the phone, has agreed to pay $21-million to license the iconic clock design they had previously sto... / Continue →

    This is a clock made entirely out of LEGO/Technic pieces and two Mindstorms NXT micro-computers. Impressive, but I once made a clock out of nothing but the sun and a stick. Just kidding, that was a forest fire, but still. Mr. Andersson...calls his clock the Time Twister. I... / Continue →

    Note: Must-see video is after the jump. To celebrate the 600-year anniversary of the Old Town Square astrological clock tower in the center of Prague, the city commissioned a video-mapping (other examples of video mapping HERE and HERE) stunt spectacular lightshow to blow your... / Continue →

    Sure I SHOULD be able to read the time even without solving the equations, but that wouldn't be giving the booze enough credit. One time I set the kitchen on fire because I couldn't figure out how long to put a 5-minute meal in the microwave (I opted for 2 hours). Joking, I p... / Continue →

    The cleverly designed Aspiral Clock slowly rotates, moving a little ball further toward the center of the spiral and telling a fairly accurate time all the while. They're handmade in Britain and come in every color imaginable. Unfortunately, the cool comes at a cost. Namely,... / Continue →

    Haha, how many of you actually tried? I did, and I didn't even screw up once. I mean, not to brag or anything but: TOY BOAT, TOY BOAT, TOY BOYT, TOY BOYT, TWOY BOYT!! Awh, shit. Do-over? Totally minimal block of wood with digital numbers floating across the surface. These... / Continue →

    Slow down when you read the titles, it's not what it sounds like. This a reproduction of Pee-wee's Clockey, from the hit children's (and high 20-something's) television show 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse'. I want the talking chair! *wikipedia-ing* Chairry! I want Chairry! Have the... / Continue →

    As many of you may know, I'm a rocket surgeon so reading this clock is like second nature to me. But for the rest of you, hopefully by now you've figured out what numbers typically go where. The Geek Clock runs $25 and would make a great addition to your cubicle, right next t... / Continue →

    The Doomsday Clock, which I'd like to think looks a little more official than that piece of shit in the picture, has been set back a minute, to 6-minutes till midnight. I suspect it's some sort of governmental diversion. The Doomsday Clock has been set back 1 minute for the f... / Continue →

    That isn't your grandfather's grandfather clock. But that may be him trapped inside! (it's not -- please don't call and wake up your grandma). You see, that's really a television screen. Tricky! This clock does not actually have a man inside but a flatscreen that plays a 2... / Continue →

    I like this clock. I can't exactly say why but I think it's because it costs $2,338 and is definitely something my son team of highly skilled artisans could recreate for a fraction of the cost, ultimately saving you, the sucker, a bundle. one of our favorite wall clocks, the ... / Continue →

    In 1955, Doctor Emmet Lathrop Brown was standing on a toilet hanging a wall clock when he slipped and beat his head on the bathroom sink. Unconscious, Doc had a vision. And that vision was that of a flux capacitor -- the device that makes time travel possible. The rest, my f... / Continue →

    I've been thinking for years how badly the world needs a $30 LEGO clock radio, so why it took so long to finally make one is beyond me. Also, quantum physics, I don't those either. The LEGO Clock Radio is ten times the size of an original LEGO brick with knobs that work as vo... / Continue →
