original wood LED clock design has become the target of plenty of "inspired" versions since its introduction in 2008, some even arguably improving the design with additional features. But Iwasaki is back with an update that stretches 15" and 10 digits across...
The 10 Digit Wood LED Digital Clock by Kouji Iwasaki gives you the time and date in glance now, alongside the addition of an alarm clock feature, making this an excellent bedside companion (though some argue the days of dedicated alarm clock might be passing, we still like alarm clocks).
This new 10 Digit LED model sells for $240, with a 6" Mini version also available for $120.
$240 or $120 still sound out of your budget? Those willing to work with LED, transistors and wood veneer can build their own version of these popular LED wood clocks following this Instructables project. This version even allows users to play very simple video games, such as 1-D Pong, JUMP! and Labyrinth!
