A Contemporary Cuckoo Clock for a Contemporary CuckooS

The Wristwatch Cuckoo Clock may still be our resident cuckoo champion, but this striped wall clock from Italy comes in a very close second.

By Diamantini & Domeniconi, the $230 Striped Cuckoo Clock has ditched the typically rustic bark and straw birdhouse design for a more modern approach to avian living. After all, in the age of dyed plastics, there's no need for birds to live in leaky, drab houses. I mean, seriously, just because you're a traditionalist doesn't mean that the entire mechanical bird world needs to suffer. Ass. [Rockett St George via Switched On Set]
