Nooka Cuckoo (concept)

10 03 2009


The cuckoo clock has had difficulty adapting to the digital era, with its species bordering on extinction. But this cuckoo watch is evidence that this poor avion timepiece might survive the harsh habitats of 2009.

Dubbed the Nooka Cuckoo by designer Hannes Grebin, this concept cuckoo watch features a digital, Tamagotchi-esque bird that appears on screen to delineate the time. And indeed, its mixture of an angled roof and rounded bottom seems to merge modern design trends with the iconic bird house clock of yore.

But as long as we’re talking concept here, I’d love to see a Lilliputian bird pop out on the hour while expelling a faint “cuckoo” for just you to hear. Plus you could poke people with it and stuff.
