A Block of Time

Do you ever wish you could just clap your hands and a little more time would appear in your day? Well, here's the next best thing: clap your hands and time appears... on the surface of this extraordinary little clock.

The ultimate in minimalist design, the clock appears to be a simple, palm-sized cube with a pale, wood veneer finish. But the sound of a hand clap or a knock on the table triggers a red digital time display to shine through the front surface. It disappears again automatically after 8 seconds. The small size and neutral colors blend unobtrusively into any decor--but the clock also has an alarm function, for when you need the time to make its presence known. Runs on 2 AAA batteries (not included), operates simply with just four buttons, and includes detailed instructions. Made in China.

        Got this as a gift. Works well. Fits our contemporary/ Mid-century modern decor. Uses a lot of batteries power. Goes through 2 AAA batteries every 2 to 3 months. Never own any batteries clock that uses so much batteries until this one. Not environmentally friendly.

          Comments about CUBE LED ALARM CLOCK:

          This little clock was exactly what we needed in our bedroom. We don't like the light that comes off of clocks so this clock was perfect as it only turns on when you make noise. All you have to do is clap or snap. The only con is that we definitely expected it to be a more tan color like in the picture. It's very light, almost white.

            Got it for my grandchildren to use in the guest room (8 yr old twins) they stay in when they visit. They can't wait to run in and check the time. It lights up with voices, a clap, a knock. Unique and fun to own.

                  Comments about CUBE LED ALARM CLOCK:

                  This clock is great. I've had it almost a month now. I am highly sensative to light, and so glad I don't have to block the clockface as I do with other clocks in by bedroom. It keeps time well, and was easy for me to set the alarm (perhaps the instructions improved since earlier reviews?). I don't believe there's a snooze funciton, but I'm fine with that. As some say, it can be sensitive to sound, as it lights up when I'm settling in and putting things on my nightstand. It's nice to just tap something nearby if I wake in the middle of the night and want to know what time it is without having to deal with constant light.

                  Comments about CUBE LED ALARM CLOCK:

                  it was easy to set up and it works as far as clapping, which is fun. it's neat that it really looks like a plain block when the LED time isn't showing, but the block itself looks very cheap and fake. seems to be plastic with some wood looking grain and then painted whitish to maybe make it look like birch wood??? but disappointed in its looks. and the alarm definitely needs to be a louder volume. if this were made in better quality (maybe real wood) and with a louder alarm volume, it's a neat (novelty) product.

                        We love this clock! We had no clocks in our living room and were using the cable menu/guide to check the time. A wall clock would not have worked in our living room, so this turned out to be the perfect solution!

                        We put it on a cabinet shelf facing the sofa in our living room, and it works perfectly! Whenever we want to know the time, we can simply clap or make a loud noise and there is the time displayed in easy to read LED. The rest of the time it really does fade into the background, faintly seen against our white cabinets.

                        It does display the time randomly when the TV is loud, but it does not bother us.

                        We do not use this as an alarm clock.

                        What a unique clock, and decorative as well. Setting this little guy was a bit challenging, especially the alarm feature. The person I spoke with at Uncommon Goods for further instructions was very helpful. The clock, so far, has been very dependable and doesn't have a super loud/annoying alarm.

                        I bought this clock for my husband because he could not stand how bright our current alarm clock was. This was a perfect solution. Aesthetically pleasing and easy to read. He did find it hard to determine if the alarm was on or off and in the middle of the night he couldn't find a way to make the time appear without being fairly loud (with the fear of waking me up). But otherwise it's a great clock and small enough for travel and looks sleek on the nightstand.
