It took most of us well past the Game Boy's lifespan to finally get that amazingly addictive Tetris theme out of our heads. But if you miss it, you can re-kindle it -- and all the frustrations you had with stacking tetrominoes -- with this Tetris digital alarm clock.
But don't worry, this isn't one of those annoying alarm clocks that forces you to complete a skill-testing puzzle before it shuts up. Instead, it's just a fancy digital clock that cleverly incorporates several Tetris elements -- like tetromino-shaped buttons, the game's well-known repetitive soundtrack as the alarm sound, and an LCD display where the digits are assembled from falling pieces as the time changes. For nostalgia's sake it's totally worth the $US40 asking price, and the fact that you can't actually use it to play Tetris is a good thing because no one wants to start their day completely frustrated.
