alarm-dock

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.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
