Life Clock is a fun way to start your day
From what I gather using the translations, the Life Clock has a liquid crystal people living in the clock that have lives of their own. Depending upon your tardiness, either they turn out sloppy or very affluent people. They respond to the different tones of the alarm as well. They can behave happy or sad, depending upon their mood. It even doubles up as a handy kitchen timer that can be set from one to ten minutes. It will be out in six exciting colors: black, white, lime green, orange, light blue and bright blue. I believe there is some story also involved regarding the characters, but my Japanese is a bit rusty to figure the whole thing out.
The Life Clock can be booked now via Amazon Japan for ¥ 3340 ($31), but the real thing will be out by 29th November.
