The problem with traditional cuckoo clocks is that they're usually ugly, gigantic, and will keep on chirping throughout the night when you're trying to sleep. But that's not the case with the Plex LED from Diamantini & Domeniconi.

In addition to a numberless ultra-modern face, the desktop clock features a tiny bird that pops out and tweets at the top of every hour accompanied by peaceful babbling forest brook sound effects. But, thanks to a built-in light sensor, it won't bother you in the evening when it's dark outside and you're not at work anxious for the hours to pass. The catch? It's also $400, but for that much money you're guaranteed it will be more reliable than your assistant.
