With timekeepers gracing everything from our cell phones to our music players, the only reason you'd need a dedicated desktop clock is to quickly glance down when someone nearby asks for the time. And to be honest, you're wasting perfectly good brain power if you're looking at an analog clock face and decoding it just to say "five 'til eleven." Save the trouble and buy the Verbarius clock, with a cue-card-like verbal display.

From the always-innovative Art Lebedev Studios, the Verbarius clock tells time the way people do, verbally, in almost any language.

Instead of little-hand-on-the-four-big-hand-on-the-three, you'll get a bright display declaring that it's "fifteen minutes past four."

Verbarius has five preloaded languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Russian. But you can easily upload any additional language you like—from Latin to Eskimoan—using the USB port. We're kind of digging UberGizmo's Pig Latin:

Grab one from Art Lebedev Studios for $220.
