Blub Uno Tube Clock!

The Blub Uno Single Tube Clock!

 Blub Uno Tube Clock!

The idea of using a good old fashioned Edison style filament radio valve for a modern clock might initially sound like madness, but just take a look at the Blub Uno and you will change your mind. The designers have managed to combine this old style technology with ultra modern design using machined aluminium, glass and bamboo materials, plus it’s powered via a USB connection making it ideal for the office just plug into the computer to bring it alive. Of course, there are plugs with USB ports available, so this clock can be used just about anywhere you like.

The Blub Uno comes in three styles Aluminium with Bamboo, plain Aluminium and there is a limited edition Black model. Finally there is the question of the how do you tell the time with just one digit? Well the display works in a series of four, making 0 – 8 – 3 – 0 equal to 08.30, so it’s quite simple to read despite just showing one number at a time. This is a classic combo of new and tech brought together into one cool device. The Blub Uno should be launching later on this year, but they can be pre ordered now with prices starting from around $300.

The Spraypaint can that projects a clock!

The Spraypaint can that projects a clock!

Clocks come in all shapes and sizes, but this is the first one that we have seen to come in the form of a can of paint spray. This is an idea from Gamago, you have the can at the side of your bed and whenever you want to see what the time is, simply pick it up and press down the spray nozzle. However, instead of spraying paint onto the wall, the can projects the time and it is bright enough to be seen at night, as well as in daylight too. The device requires a couple of AA batteries, which are included and easily replaced when they run out. If you like, the idea of the Spraypaint clock then it is going to set you back around $20.

Having Trouble Getting Up? You Need The Alarming Clock!

Having Trouble Getting Up? You Need The Alarming Clock!

Although this clock is called the Alarming Clock it is actually far from being alarming as has been designed to help the owner wind down before sleeping, it does this through two alarms. The first alarm warns the user that it is time to wind down and the second is the one that wakes them up following a relaxing sleep. Unusually the actual clock is located on the base of the clock, this has been done on purpose to prevent clock watching, we have all done this before and it is probably the main cause for a bad nights sleep. The alarms are easy to set as its just a matter of using the + and – icons to set the required times.

Finally the design of the clock is based on nature, in fact the clock has been inspired by the Woodpecker and tree, a classic combination of two things living in harmony. The Alarming Clocks sound has been created around this relationship and therefore no loud buzzes will shock you to awake. The Alarming clock is set to be released this summer, but at the moment the company is accepting pre orders for a short time, which means that for £180 you can get the Alarming Clock that has been individually numbered and comes with a signed certificate.
