What happens with all the electronics after we're done with them? Landfill. Unless you are talking about Joon & Jung Paper Alarm Clock.
Paper Alarm Clock
. An alarm clock with an exterior case made from paper pulp; the clock comes with a self address envelope for when you feel like you've finished using it; instead of discarding the clock, you simply put it inside the envelope and mail it back to the designers, so they can re-furbish it and send it to the next owner instead of polluting the planet.
Basically, you can create this yourself with a variety of cases, boxes or more simple approaches to hold all the electronics together.
Like this Pong Clock
