You could wake up to the buzzing of an alarm clock. You could wake up to your smartphone's ringtone. Or you could wake up to the dulcet tones of the Tetris theme music.
The Tetris alarm clock is officially licensed. At first glace, it's a little nondescript. Look closer and you'll see the function buttons are shaped like Tetris blocks.
The clock's real draw are the falling blocks that build each number as the time changes. The gadget is currently available for preorder for about $40 from Firebox.
I can't help but think the makers of this alarm clock missed a golden opportunity to have a setting that requires you to successfully complete a game of Tetris to turn off the alarm.
Static photos don't do the clock justice. Check out the video of the falling numbers in action. It's kind of mesmerizing.
