I splashed out on a clock called the Dotklok. I bought this via Etsy.com and this was the first time I'd come across this website.
It tuns out that Etsy.com is a website set up for small business people to advertise and sell their own products to individual buyers. It reminded me of a massive arts and crafts fare, but with cooler stuff for sale and instead of each stall holder getting a small booth or a table, they get a professional looking webpage with proper payment facilities.
I bought the Dotklok as soon as I heard about it, fully expecting the boot of Atari's lawyers to stamp down on the sale of a clock that can tell the time via a game of Pong© (™). This hasn't happened yet (and I hope it doesn't), the Atari brand has changed hands so many times, they have probably forgotten who owns what anyway.
Since the demand is there why don't the people who own the Atari rights, licence someone to make official Pong Watches and Clocks - I'd buy a Pong watch tomorrow. The idea of telling the time using a game of pong is a stroke of genius, it's such a perfect concept, it's fun, retro and practical, all at the same time….and at the moment, it's a missed opportunity.
Anyway, click through to see my hands-on look at the clock, I wouldn't really call it a review because I'd already made my mind up about it before I bought it.
