Mummy the clock is looking at me!
No, really, it is. But it’s hard not to love this cute eye-clock from Firebox. While the paranoid among you may find it a little disturbing to be watched by disembodied eyes nestled on the bedside table, the sleek design and “party pupils” can’t fail to win over kooky design fans.
The battery-operated timepiece uses a unique method of telling the time. While the left eye looks at the hour, the right eye checks out the minutes creating endless cross-eyed combinations, as if agreeing with you that yes it IS madness to get up at 7:30am but it’s a crazy world we live in and we all just have to do our best.
It’s not necessarily going to improve your punctuality and I’m not saying you can accurately boil a 3-minute egg by this but it sure beats the pants off all that boring big hand/little hand business.
