If you still fancy a good old retro alarm clock you’ll like this cool product by Thanko Japan. This gadget looks just like a real retro alarm clock, but it has MP3 support and a USB plug that allows you to customize its alarm sound. You just need to connect the USB cable to your PC and upload a short MP3 music file to the clock that you want to be played back when it is time for the alarm to sound. The software is pretty simple and easy, and the only downside is that there is no snooze button, but that’s now such a big problem anyway. That is because you have to flip a switch on the back of the clock in order to stop the alarm and in order to do this you’ll have to be pretty much awake, but the best part that you’ll wake you to the sound you choose. The MP3 clock is also a great gift idea for everyone.
