Geeky Gadget Wish List #6: BTTF Alarm Clock
This one is pretty self-explanatory: An alarm clock based on the ‘Time Coordinates’ input device from Back to the Future. A few things: I had trouble filling out the bottom display, so I think it could be done better, unless you want to make it a second alarm. Obviously, this will include a dimmer for those irritated by any bit of light trying to sleep (like I am).
I also added an iPod docking cord that is encased in a LED rope light, a look similar to what adorns the DeLorean from the films. The cord is bolted down for an industrious look Doc Brown would approve of! In a way, this gives the clock an added lamp – great for the desk or bedside.
Again, if this is a gadget you dig, I recommend you bug Thinkgeek here, where they take email submissions for gadget ideas. Select the ‘Gadgets’ heading, and send them a link to this post and tell them you want one! If you’re not familiar with Thinkgeek, they make all kinds of cool gadgets, definitely worth browsing.
Also, looking back at this old post, yikes. Those signatures were massive. The art could be better…
UPDATE April 26/2011: Well I decided to do some nice new renders. I can’t believe how bad those old ones look (especially that jarring gradient in the GIF). Here they are:
I think the standalone clock (minus the iPod cable) looks great! That would be my preference.
