I'd Consider Buying an iPhone or iPad Just to House Them in These Gorgeous Alarm Clocks

Harking back to the classic Dieter Rams design, Frog's wooden alarm clock would go perfectly with one of the flip clock apps for the iPhone. And oh, how the iPad looks in that mini-CRT...

Unlike a lot of the well-designed objects we feature on these pages, they are actually real. But that's not to say they actually work. You see, they're just pieces of wood! No more, no less. All of the electronics to make the alarm go off, or the movies play, are right there in your iDevices. They'll cost $35 when they go on sale at Areaware in September. [Areawear via Fastco]
