There are two things I don't like when I wake up in the morning — having to look across the room at the alarm clock on my desk, and sitting up to make sense of it. This timepiece acknowledges both issues.
Designed by Greg Wolos, the Emily alarm clock is both wall-mountable and sideways oriented so that it is by your bed and easily readable when you're in a prone position. It mixes retro looks with some modern styling, but will make your pockets $US130 lighter. It still might be worth it. [Generate Design via Oh Gizmo via Gadget Lab]
