This wooden clock has numerals that mysteriously appear on its surface, as if they were being projected. It works with a thin layer of wood over the numerals, so they can shine through. But until those numbers appear, it looks exactly like a Scandinavian-designed, well-sanded 10-inch-long block of teakwood. There are no buttons to be seen, no controls in sight—the time and alarm-set buttons are all hidden around back. So if your crib is getting far, far too geeky-looking, get back to basics for $174.
