Cathode ray tubes aren’t old-hat now we have flatscreen TVs – it turns out that they have another use: making damn cool clocks.
If you’ve got $999 burning a hole in your pocket, and you’re too late to buy the “I am Rich” iPhone app, then you could get a Scope Clock. It can do both analogue and digital faces and even has built in GPS – not for navigational purposes, but so it can get the exact time to atomic precision from the GPS satellites. The main thing though is that it looks incredibly stylish, and would look at home in both the slick apartment of the sort of person who’d refer to it as their “pad”, or underground in a distopian Matrix-esque future. I want one.
