At first glance it's easy to dismiss this memo board alarm clock as being just another piece of technocrappery from Brando. But how often do you wake in the middle of the night with a brilliant idea you don't want to forget?

When you're half asleep the last thing you want to do is fumble with your smartphone or battle its keyboard's autocorrect. You need an easier way to denote your inspiration, brilliant invention, or snappy comeback—and what could be simpler than a bedside memo board? It's just $19 and not only does it glow, making it impossible to miss what you've written when you're finally awake, but Brando has also crammed a four port USB hub in there as well. That's like having your cake, and eating it, and having a place to plug in your smartphone. Brilliant.
