We're all geeks here. No need to be bashful. But what a lot of people don't seem to get is that there are many different classifications of the geek hierarchy and not all geeks are created equal. You've got Apple geeks, gadget geeks, TV geeks, Trekkie geeks, anime geeks... there's too many to name (But somebody tried—a link to "56 Geeks" is under the jump). And for each kind of geek, there are different types of gadgets out there to make his media room, or in this case, a bedside table, complete. The Tokibot Robot Clock is for the sci-fi geek...

You know how sometimes things just seem like a great idea but turn out awful? This is kinda the opposite.

An analog clock embedded into the tummy of a robot with pose-able legs and arms seems like it would only fit in in a kids room, and only because kids love robots and don't mind when alarm clocks clash with their decor (ah, to be a kid again!). But this clock ends up coming out a little retro and all kinds of cool.

Tokibot is available in Blue or Green with the always-awesome promise that batteries are included. Available here for $35.99.

Oh, and "56 Geeks" is a hilarious poster illustrated by Scott Johnson from myextralife.com. Head over there to identify all 56 geeks at their home in the wild (aka Game Stop, Best Buy or ComicCon).
