Areaware Alarm Dock by Jonas Damon – turn your iPhone into a flip-style clock

Areaware

Interesting idea that mixes the past with the present – the Areaware Alarm Dock.

It looks like a vintage-style flip (or early digital) clock, but it's actually a beech wood dock for an iPhone. Slide your phone into the front and it becomes a clock, charging overnight too. That clock display comes from a flip clock app.

Available to pre-order directly, $39.99 is the price.
