Five O’Clock Wall Clock: Because It’s the Best Time of the Day

5 Oclock Wall Clock

 

Five o’clock. It’s the time of day that you look forward to the most, each and every single weekday. And on weekends if you’ve got work on those days, too. It’s ironic how time seems to crawl by so slowly when you’re at work or doing some mundane chore or errand that you couldn’t get out of.

If you feel like that most of the time, then you might want to get one of these Five O’clock wall clocks. As you can see, it only has the number five printed on its face. All you have to do is glance over quickly to check how far or how close the hour hand is to five with no other numbers to distract you.

You can get the clock for $100.

Wake Up to the Smell of Deliciousness: Oscar Mayer’s Bacon Alarm Clock

Oscar Meyer Bacon Alarm Clock0

 

Whoever invented alarm clocks got it all wrong. If you want to get people out of bed, then you might want to give them a better reason to do so. A wailing alarm clock (with an occasionally defective snooze button that makes the entire process a hundred times more annoying) is clearly not what most people have in mind.

Alarm clock makers should take a cue from Oscar Mayer. They’ve come up with the Wake Up and Smell the Bacon app and iPhone dongle duo that basically wakes people up with the delicious scent of bacon.

RadioVault is an iPod Dock and Safe In One

Radiovault

Stuff like the RadioVault is really ingenious for keeping your valuable stuff safe and out of the prying eyes and hands of would-be burglars. It looks like your typical iPod dock on the outside, complete with a LED display that shows off the current time and what day of the week it is. But on the inside, it’s a stealthy safe that provides you with some secure storage space for your big ticket items.

Now you can just keep them in your regular safe, but if you wear or use these items regularly, then that option might not be so convenient. The fingerprint-activated safe is made to look like the dock’s speakers, so people who aren’t in the know won’t even think to look there.

This App Makes You Slap, Shake, and Flip Your Phone to Turn the Alarm Off

Wake App

I think it’s safe to say that alarms get on most people’s nerves, especially when it’s early in the morning. But that’s the point of the alarm, isn’t it? To annoy people so much so that they feel compelled to wake up, just so they can shut the alarm up. By then, most alarms will have achieved their goal, which was to wake the person up in the first place.

One such app is Wake. It doesn’t have the most annoying of alarms, but it’s enough to wake you up because of how you’re supposed to snooze the alarm.

Morse Code Clock: You Don’t Have to Know the Code to Tell the Time

Morse Code Clock

The Morse code was huge back in the day when people used telegraphs to communicate. It’s not something you should necessarily learn at this point, although I do think it’s advantageous to learn the code, just in case you find yourself in a tight spot and can’t communicate except by Morse.

Helping you polish up on your numbers and just making your room look infinitely cooler is the Morse Code clock.

Sleep If U Can App: Take the Exact Same Picture You Set Earlier to Shut the Alarm

Alarm Clock

The mark of a good alarm clock app is when people hate it–because then, it’ll mean that it actually works. The newest alarm clock app making the rounds is called Sleep If U Can. It’s funny that they should pose that challenge, because I’m sure most people who get this app won’t be able to once the alarm goes off.

What sets this app apart from the rest is what you’re supposed to do in order to shut it up. There’s no snooze button or password to enter. Instead, you’ll have to get up and take the exact same photo of whatever it was you chose to set as your wake-up shot earlier.

Rise Alarm Clock

Getting up every morning to go to work is one of the hardest things to do…if you love sleep as much as I do. If you’ve been late more times than you should’ve this year and can’t really make yourself go to bed earlier the night before, then you need a simple but smart alarm clock app that you can count on, like Rise.

It sports an easy-to-navigate interface that takes full advantage of your iPhone’s touch, gesture, and swipe controls.

Shoot to Snooze Alarm Clock Sleeps Only When You Hit the Bullseye

Nerf Shoot to Snooze

Alarm clocks are the bane of many people’s existence. They’re sometimes noisy and always annoying, but unfortunately, you still need them to help you wake up in the mornings. So why not make it a bit more fun with the Shoot to Snooze alarm clock? It’s the funnest way to wake up and it might even get rid of your weekday-morning blues. It also gives you an excuse why you need to keep your trust Nerf gun hidden under your pillow.

The Shoot to Snooze alarm clock looks just like your average clock, but instead of having a big, old snooze button on top, it’s got targets  printed on each face. Hit that target using Nerf darts (or any random object that you think will do the trick, for that matter) and it’ll give you a couple of minutes to snooze away. But if you’re a poor shot, then you’re probably better off with something like the Mr. Bump Alarm Clock.

It’s available for £14.99 (about $24).

Make Your Own Animated Pong Clock

Pong-Clock

By Chris Scott Barr

While not the first video game in existence, Pong was the first widely-successful video game and is responsible for kick-starting the video game industry. It’s natural to want to pay homage to this gaming legacy in a variety of ways. We’ve seen a few Pong clocks in the past, but this is the first DIY kit I can recall coming across.

Not only does this purchase net you a cool clock that will make you the envy of your geeky friends, but it gives you a fun little project. It’s a fairly simple kit that even a beginner should be able to tackle in 2-3 hours. There’s just something about the satisfaction you get when you assemble something like this on your own (even if it did come from a kit). The going rate for one of these is $80, but unfortunately you’ll have to be patient. It looks like everyone else wanted one to, as they’re currently sold out.
