A clock with multiple personalities

Changes function depending on position

Muji

This may not look like the most crushworthy item, but it's a classic case of form following functions--and many of them, at that. Depending on how you position it, the "multi-functional clock" from Japan-based Muji is a clock, a calendar, a thermometer or an alarm. Its utilitarian design lends itself for use in the kitchen or, as Ubergizmo suggests, as a space-saving travel device. And at $12, you won't fret too much about it when your luggage gets lost.
