Chococlock – eat yourself to a timely demise

chococlock

This here Chococlock is a breezy idea, non? Every hour on the hour, instead of a chime, the thing delivers a small chocolate into your eager and somewhat grubby hands. Now that’s what I call a recipe for…and say what? It plays Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy at the same time? Shudder. £19.99.

The Chococlock holds about 30 bits of chocolate, so assuming you resist hitting the cheat button you can sit gawping in anticipation for a marathon (or should that be Snickers?) 30 hours. Which is obvious, we know, but if you’re loopy enough to sit by a sweet-dispensing clock for that long it’s unlikely you can count. When the clock is eventually empty it can be re-stocked with choc via a small rear chute.

    Why, why, why build something like that if it’s got a cheat button?

    Maybe they should market it to university students and make it dispense NoDoz so they can keep cramming.
