Our Gizmodo batcave is usually dark enough to see even the dimmest projection clock, but some days there is this girl who comes in and opens the blinds, and all of a sudden we're wondering what time it is. Here's the Oregon Scientific Daylight Projection Clock to fix that predicament, with plenty of wattage in its LED bulb to automatically goose up the amount of light it projects as the room's ambient light intensifies.
Things get fancy when the alarm sounds, where you can impress that girl by turning it off with a magical wave of your hand over the LED. Its IR motion sensor also allows you to toggle between its time, alarm and room-temperature modes. Magical or not, she still thinks we're all geeks. It's $89.95.
