iHome clock-dock tries to shrink its footprint

It bends over backward in the name of space.

If there's one thing iHome specializes in, it's figuring out how to fit an iPod in any space.

Various docks have done everything from rotate to combine with lamps and speakers to save space wherever possible. And where does one build when real estate is scarce? Up, of course.

The "Spacesaver Alarm Clock" curves backward in a yoga-like position apparently to make as much surface area accessible while maintaining a minimal footprint. It also has LEDs on the sides and adjustable brightness so you can use it as a nightlight.
