Oregon Scientific has put out two really cool retro alarm clocks. The projector alarm clocks feature a projector that shines the time on the ceiling. The clocks also feature atomic-clock synchronization and a temperature display with a wireless thermometer. Very creative.

Implications - Standalone alarm clocks may have taken a hit with the widespread adoption of mobile phone alarms, but product designers are fighting back by creating tech-savvy timepieces with innovative functionality. Alarm clocks that project the time in unusual ways or display weather information offer traits that mobile phone's can't match, cementing their relevance in a crowded niche market. These alarm clocks appeal most to geeks and gadget hounds who love to show off their technological savvy. Stats for Projector Alarm Clocks Trending: Older & Warm
