Some people like simple and elegant design solutions for their everyday products. Some people just don’t want to live with the constant reminder that their lives are slipping away. The Clap or Tap Block Clock is a clock that looks like a wooden block until you activate it.
It could be a bookend or just a stand. Without knowing what it is, you wouldn’t know it was actually a clock. You activate it by either sound or touch. If you’re in bed, just reach over and give it a little tap. If you’re across the room, give a clap and it will come to life giving you the perfect time. It can also display the date and temperature. There’s a snooze function to go with the three possible alarms.
This is great at night because the glow doesn’t stay. After a few moments it turns itself off and, if you’re in bed at night, casts the room back into perfect darkness. No more opening your eyes to see the ever present burning digital readout as sleep continues to evade you. The Clap or Tap Block Clock is $79.95.
