This has to be the weirdest clock radio I've ever seen. See, at each intersection of the quilted grid on top of the radio, is actually a preset radio station. You change the station by rolling the magnetized ball to another grid intersection. What, pressing buttons wasn't good enough? What happens if you lose the ball? Can you get a replacement? I guess it does look kinda cool, and the concept sounds interesting enough, but this sounds more like an executive toy than anything really useful.

You can program up to 18 preset stations, nine AM and nine FM. Uses two AA batteries or a standard AC/DC outlet. Now selling for $60.
