Doctor Who Shakri Cube Clock
If you’re a Whovian you probably recognize this Shakri Cube, featured in a recent episode. Because of their countdown timer feature and small size, I thought they would be ideal for a clock. These cubes also open, so an iOS device dock might be a worthwhile addition. This could be a normal clock or alarm clock.
The only drawback would be needing a cord for power, which spoils the appearance of this looking somewhat like a prop replica. All the LED lights are not very optimal for battery operation. Instead it could be solar-powered or maybe sitting on a wireless charge pad/mat, allowing you to pick it up and juggle it or throw recklessly at co-workers.
I’d also include a couple of plain black cubes, should you want to stack them. Power could be re-routed through all the cubes, much like this neat Tetris light from Thinkgeek.*
