Yeah, yeah... If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's probably a duck. But even though this gadget quacks like a clock, it's not a clock. In fact, "I'm Not a Clock" is its name. It's a radio designed by the Antrepo Design team that features two coincentrical circle dials with arms. Are you sure its no—Yes, we're sure it's not a clock. One dial tunes in the frequency and the other changes the volume...

The "I'm Not a Clock," also known as "Tuner Time," has the dubious distinction of having not one, but two names that sound like the punchlines in SNL commercial spoofs.

The red and black radio comes with a remote control, which we find to be the best part of the whole gizmo.

Perch Tuner Time on the wall or on your media console—anywhere you'd conventionally place a clock—and wait for your friends to glance back to check the time. When they do, send the frequency and volume dials winding out of control until they've been sufficiently convinced you spiked their drink with hallucinogenics. Brilliant.
