There’s nothing quite like a new spin on an old product.  And arriving just in time before the year’s end is Edifier’s Tick Tock clock.

While it may appear to be your old school alarm clock, it’s anything but.  Those would be bells perched up top are in fact 360 degree firing, 1.5-inch full range speakers.  We can’t make any promises in terms of sound quality, but we’re willing to bet that the sound from this 7 watt powered bed side companion produces anything but full and rich audio.  But come on, would you really buy this for that purpose?

In terms of other specs, all versions of the Tick Tock boast an AUX input, meaning you can playback audio from any compatible device, as well as an LCD screen for viewing the time and tuning in a radio station.  There are three models to choose from, which includes a version with a 30-pin dock for your iPhone or iPod Touch, a Bluetooth version for wireless audio playback or one that ships with an SD card slot.  And while all of them sport an AUX and USB input, none of the models sports all two or all three aforementioned features.  In other words, the Dock version doesn’t include Bluetooth and viceversa. A bit weak if you ask us, but perhaps it’s all in the name of cost.

And speaking of which, they start at $69.99.
