Check out this this cool alarm clock called the DOTKLOK - "an open-source, digital clock with multiple time-telling animations: some numeric, some graphic, and others using abstract patterns driven by the passage of time".
DOTKOK rev. 1.0 from The Latest Artists on Vimeo.
Created and built by Ottawa artist Andrew O'Malley, it's available for sale on Etsy from about $150 and up. I want one.
