Wake up early using the greedy BanClock


I have always been fascinated (and sometimes thoroughly frustrated) with the kind of innovation that happens with a product as simple and basic as a clock. And we have kept our readers updated with the numerous releases that this product category sees, ranging from a clock that buzzes with the sounds of NYC traffic to one that displays an endless random game of tennis.

To add to this category is the Scrooge of all clocks - the Banclock. The working of this clock is simple - unless you feed in some change, the clock will keep yelling its guts out. The positive aspect of this is that if you end up losing your job due to oversleeping, you at least have all that money that this clock guzzled while you slept. However, the flip side is that if you do not have any change in the morning to shut this thing up, your only option would be to silence it permanently. My advice - skip this one and stick to your basic alarm. And if you really want to save money, get a piggy bank and stuff it with the 50 bucks you end up saving by not buying this product.

Available only in Japan at this time.
