The Gingko Slab Click Clock: A Great Addition to Any Minimalist Room

What looks like a simple wooden brick is the minimalist’s dream in an alarm clock. The Slab Click Clock from Gingko is chic and unassuming—your guests may wonder why you thought a block of wood was necessary at your bedside. Maybe for self defense? Well, in addition to using this as a weapon, there’s much more to it than meets the eye. With a snap of your fingers, a clap of your hands or a knock on the table, the slab comes to life, showing the time, date and temperature alternatively. This sound activation setting is awesome because you can avoid that 24/7 glow other clocks have.

If you’re not into the whole clap on, clap off thing, the Click Clock has a permanent display setting. There’s also an automatic dimmer between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. so you won’t get that annoying glaring light when you wake up in the middle of the night. The clock comes with a 5V-500mA AC/DC wall plug adapter, but for a sleeker, wire-free display, you can also rely on the built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery. Sleek, stylish and smart, this British designed, high quality clock is a great device for any modern room. Buy Here
