'Dr. Light' is not an iPod mutation

Upon first viewing, this looked either like a Photoshop job or evidence that our monitor was in desperate need of serious adjustment. But rather than some iPod laboratory experiment gone horribly awry, the "Dr. Light Alarm Clock" is merely what its name indicates.

The distracting design is actually unfortunate because the clock has some interesting features in its own right--namely, according to Gizmodo, several rows of LEDs that light up to reflect the time of day. That, at least, is certainly more useful than other LED products we've seen lately.
