Ok, so what’s so special about this clock? Well, it might look like any old vintage clock, but it’s actually an MP3 Clock from Thanko.
So what does that mean? Well, instead of a bell ringing, this one connects to your computer to download music – which can then wake you up. But there’s more – it also offers animal calls, sound effects or even your own voice if you want some to shout at yourself in a morning to get out of bed. Oh yes – and it tells the time too.
Sadly, this is only available in Japan right now, which is a shame, because it retails at the equivalent of £13 – and I’d be happy to have a 60s soul tune get me out of bed from this.
