The Blub by Duncan Hellmers, an industrial designer based in Sydney, Australia, is a clock fit for a mad scientist. With its glass tube and metal base design, it could easily pass for lab equipment that has been repurposed as a time-teller for a busy researcher who couldn't spare the time to go out and purchase a more traditional one from the store.

Bridging the gap between retro and modern, the Blub by Duncan Hellmers is perfect for the home or work office. For all of its cold materials, it emits a warm glow in the form of the numbers telling the time. Currently vying for funds on Kickstarter, it has already surpassed its goal of $5,000. This comes as no surprise considering its unique and stylish appeal that suits any space. Stats for Mad Scientist Clocks Trending: Older & Mild
