Annoying alarm clock throws a ball at you

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

Alarm clocks are far too easy to turn off, defeating the purpose of an alarm. Just hit the button and go back to sleep. But with the Aphelion clock concept, you will wake up annoyed. It forces you to retrieve the ball that it just threw at you, so you can put it back in its holder to activate the snooze function.

The other features are pretty standard. There’s a radio and MP3 player input, and a large display. Depending on how heavy the ball is, it may just put you back to sleep. Permanently.

Wii Bowling Ball is one Wii peripheral too many

Wii Bowling Ball is one Wii peripheral too manyWii accessories officially jump the shark with this Wii bowling ball. Now all you need are some fugly shoes and you are all set to break records by knocking down fake pins and being a dork. This “ultra-realistic accessory”, allows you to mimic all the critical motions of a “striking performance”.

It works by pressing the release button to open the ball in half, where you place the Wii remote inside and close the ball. Once the remote is inside, put your fingers in and hang your head in shame for buying this thing.

Wake up to a Shrieking Ball

Wake up to a Shrieking BallAre you one of those people who can’t seem to wake up on time no matter what you do? You should probably get more sleep, but failing that you want an alarm clock like this concept. The Shrieking Ball concept alarm clock, if it ever sees production, should come with a lifetime guarantee that it will wake you pretty damn quick.

That’s because it will sound off until you lift the main orb from the base. As it shrieks, you’ll have to place it down just so in its cradle in order to stop the little hellspawn. I think this is a sure way to get somebody awake in the morning.

Rubik’s Cube gets spherical updateRubik’s 360 is not an Xbox 360 title. It’s the next version of the popular cube puzzle that is a sphere. The device is about to be officially unveiled in Germany this week at a national toy show. As you might imagine nerds the world over are enthusiastic about laying their hands on it.

The gadget has six balls trapped inside transparent plastic spheres. To solve it, you have to figure out how to get the internal balls “from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.”

Tee off with the Golf Ball Mouse

Tee off with the Golf Ball Mouse
This is probably not the best mouse to use gaming-wise. But Golf fans will have fun hitting a tiny ball in the hole either with the mouse that resembles a squished golfball or included putter. It even comes with the mousepad, looking like the green, and a flag.

Great for getting some game play in on those rainy days where you would otherwise get hit by lightning. The mouse, not content with being an ordinary flattened ball, will also light up in several colors. No word on price, but I’m guessing it won’t cost very much, since it won’t actually improve your skill.


Measure ball speed with the Glove Radar

Measure ball speed with the Glove Radar
When you’re playing a game of catch, a radar gun isn’t exactly the most convenient way to measure a ball’s speed. The Glove Radar is an affordable way to measure how much heat your friend is throwing your way. It attaches to the back of your glove with a weather-resistant nylon cord. Sure, it looks dorky, but what are ya gonna do?

It uses microwave Doppler technology to measure the ball’s speed as it approaches. When the ball arrives you’ll see it’s speed indicated in mph on the LCD display. The Radar is powered by a single 3V lithium battery, which isn’t rechargeable, but it’s good for about 5,000 speed measurements. You’ll probably be bored with it long before then.
