It might have given you invincibility or unlimited ammo on the countless games that acknowledged it, but sadly the Konami code won’t buy you a single second of extra sleep on this custom Xronos alarm clock. But the large scoreboard-like LED display and use of authentic console buttons will have you wondering if you fell asleep at the arcade again.
If green isn’t your thing, the LED display can be toggled to red or orange, and can be dimmed if you don’t feel like drifting off to sleep next to a giant blinding scoreboard. A built-in temperature sensor also gives you early notice of what the room will be like outside of your comfy covers, while a microSD card slot lets you play music or wake up to whatever sounds you prefer.
At a little over £150 it’s a pricey alternative to the phone you’re probably already using to wake up in the morning, but classic gaming fans will no doubt find the Xronos’ lure too hard to resist.
