Bomba Alarm Clock

I love this alarm clock- it looks like something out of a science fiction movie, but in a very tame, nondescript sort of way.

“The Bomba alarm clock designed by Wil Van Den Bos features a technical design with moving gears and blue illumination for night time viewing. The blue night lighting can be dimmed or turned off. This modern clock…operates on AC power with the included low voltage adapter.”

Hourglass Clock

“The Hourglass Clock is a clock like no other. Designed by David Dear, this modern clock displays the time as the top and bottom rotate independantly of each other. The passing seconds are displayed by the spinning circle on the top surface of the clock. This clock is 6.5″ high by 4.75″ in diameter and operates on one AA battery (not included).”
