The Takara Tomy Clockman Empathizes With You

I’ve always thought that if my alarm clock could at least feel bad when it so abruptly wakes me up, waking up so early wouldn’t be so bad; and now I can try out this theory with the Takara Tomy Clockman. Empathy can go a long way, even from inanimate objects, or in this case, animate technology.

To set off the Takara Tomy Clockman, all you have to do is hit the colorful button on the top of its ‘head.’ With that simple, sometimes forceful (even violent) motion, you will witness not only a whole range of facial expressions, but it will also start to talk.
