LED Alarm Clock

LED Alarm Clock

Digital clocks, for the most part, have had the same general form factor for years. The all resemble some sort of basic rectangular shape.

The Numbers LED Alarm Clock has changed all of that and spiced things up a bit.

Each “digit” is its own individual block that can be moved, stacked, twisted, or placed however you feel like. It comes with a separate controller for the settings and alarm (including snooze).

It’s due to hit night stands around the world on August 20, 2007 and will set you back ~$150.

USB Air Freshener…things just got weird

USB Air Freshener

I’ve seen some rather unusual USB devices in my day…but this might be the weirdest.

The USB Fragrance Oil drive from USB Geek lets you plugin a small “drive” into a USB port and put in a few drops of fragrance for which it will graciously emit throughout the day.

They have four magnificently un-geeky scents available: Rose, Peppermint, Jasmine, and Lavender.

What is the world coming to?
