The Click Message Clock from Gingko is an eco-friendly clock that does a lot more besides telling time. After all, there’s nothing more mind-numbing than staring at a clock. It’s excruciatingly painful to watch the seconds and minutes go tick-tock on a clock. The Click Message Clock redeems itself by alternating between the time, date, temperature and a custom message that you can feed in. In fact, you can store up to seven different messages and have one of them show up on each day of the week. The kicker, of course, is that all this is flashed on a block of wood. The novelty of having electronic messages flashing across a wooden box makes telling time a whole lot more fun. Oh, and it also has an alarm with five different settings.
