Since most alarm clocks are designed to sit on a bedside table, mankind has developed the unique ability to read the time at a 90 degree angle while laying in bed. It’s yet another skill that separates us from the animals, but it looks like someone is trying to change that. Designed by Greg Wolos, the Emily alarm clock is supposed to be mounted to the wall or a headboard so that the red LED display ends up being on its side, making it easier to read while lying in bed.
Now I for one refuse to let my angled time reading skills be forgotten, and intend to pass them onto my children and grandchildren. But I also refuse to pay $129 for an alarm clock with less features than a model from the early 80’s.
