The results are pretty funny and more awkward than any human-on-human first date we can imagine. Check out the banter, which quickly takes an odd philosophical turn, below.

Alarm Clock Forces You to Play Tetris to Prove You’re Awake [VIDEO]

The problem with alarm clocks, as night owls will tell you, is that they can too easily be turned off or snooze-buttoned into ineffectiveness.

Not so with the Tetris alarm clock: The only way to get this baby to stop sounding is for the owner to prove they're awake and alert by completing four lines of Tetris.

POP Phone Turns Your Cell Into an Old-Fashioned Handset

There was once a time when talking on the phone was a quiet affair, usually in the privacy of one's own home or an enclosed glass booth. Other people's phone calls have since become an annoyance, due to the ubiquity of the cells and the fact that Bluetooth headsets make it nearly impossible to tell who's crazy and who's talking to a client. A return to classical form might not be an altogether bad thing.

Created by French designer David Turpin for Native Union, the POP Phone is a bulky, vintage-inspired headset for your mobile device, laptop or computer (Lenny Kravitz is a fan). Available in six colors for the fairly reasonable price of $29.90, you can pick up your little piece of updated antiquity today. Check out a video review below:
