Listen to the rolling ball

It's just an alarm clock, but with an interesting twist

This may look like a shiny alarm clock with a shiny ball on top--and, well, it is. But not just any ball. The silver orb is actually part of the apparatus, determining the radio station depending on where it's positioned.

Rather than a simple dial or buttons, the magnetized ball moves along a tick-tack-toe-style grid until it rests in one of nine niches that changes the programmable channels, according to Coolest-Gadgets. Just don't lose that ball, or you could end up listening to Paul Harvey for the rest of your life.
