Lark silent alarm clock system launching June 14 at Apple Store

Lark iPhone Alarm

If you're tired of waking up your significant other (or your significant other waking you up!) when the alarm clock goes off, you may want to take a peek at the Lark. They're calling it a silent "un-alarm" clock, and the promise is that it will wake you up without disturbing those around you. How does it work? You wear a sleep sensor on your wrist, and dock your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into the cradle. The device will now act as a bedside clock, while the sensor tracks all sorts of into about your sleep cycle. When it's time to wake up, the sensor on your write starts to vibrate, which is enough to wake you from your slumber. 

The device will be available in Apple Stores starting on June 14th, and it'll cost $129. We've already got one in for review, so look for our thoughts on the Lark shortly.

Bungee Jumping Clock: Because Cuckoo Clocks are so yesterday

The Bungee Jumping Clock is one of those concept devices that I just can’t help but report on.  It’s like someone has finally realized that all those nice curio cuckoo clocks of yesteryear have gone, and it is time to embrace an Xtreme sports era. 

Besides this picture, this is about all of the information I have on this particular clock.  You have to admit that part of you wants to see some guy who throws caution to the wind tell you what time it is.

A Rubiks Cube-esque Wall Clock

Cubic Wall ClockIt’s retro chic, it’s …and it’s 100% cool. It’s the Do It Yourself Cubic Wall Clock, which we think bears more than a passing resemblance to the ever-maddening Rubik’s Cube. Just make sure the block with the clock hands is in the center… and the rest of the design is totally up to you! Comes with 12 self-adhesive colored plastic cubes that measure approx. 2.5 x 2.5”. Requires 1 AA battery. Perfect for the Rubik’s fanatic (we know you’re out there!), 80’s-lovin’ types or to just to add some major pizazz to your home. Available for approx. $70 USD.

Case Logic showed off a series of bags at this year. Their cases range from protecting the smallest of iPod Nano’s to the largest of Laptops. In this video, we give you a look at bags designed for customization by the user, which included pens and Sharpie markers, as well as stencils to help you…well…make it you. Could you technically write on any bag that you purchase? Sure, but would it be as fun? We’d like to think so, but we are some stencil-needing fools. In any event, check the video out to learn more about these stylish totes.
