Sufficient to say we’ve seen our share of iPhone docking station alarm clocks. You probably have as well if you took a stroll around your local Brookstone (and by “stroll” we mean looked around while sitting in a massaging chair). Though we’ve seen a bunch of them, we haven’t seen one that integrates the dock and iPhone in such a perfect way as this Alarm Dock from designer Jonas Damon does. It’s that retro faux wood grain vibe mixed with the modern technology of your app machine. The power supply gets routed from the back and by using the flip clock app, you can wake like you got transported back to the 70’s. Then grab your iPhone and hit the road listening to some Zeppelin and Stones in your VW Bus.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
