Over on Boing Boing Gadgets, our John's gone ape for a retro airplane-cockpit-styled alarm clock that does nothing except wake you up and look fabulous. I'm with him — this stuff makes me want to stand up and salute.
Absolutely gorgeous. The St. Louis Aerial Clock Radio apes the cockpit control mechanisms of a 1920s airplane, with four separate digital windows displaying the time like an altometer. But that's about it: it's merely a radio and alarm clock, without even a line-in jack or iPod dock connector. £49.95
