But where do I BUY one?... My boss said he wants one for his kid so I thought I'd schmooze and see how much it would hit Santa in the pocketbook. Apparently it won an award in a Korean functional design contest which is where the hype is coming from (google for "blowfly alarm clock" and check out all the blogs that have posted this...) but apparently they are not in production for sale at Sharper Image or wherever else folks get their whizz-bang toys.

The reply from Yankodesign, the folks who sponsored the designer of the Blowfly clock:

Quote
Dear Edvard,

Thank you for your inquiry and interests in our design shop. Unfortunately
Blowfly is a conceptual design for now only and is not available to the
public. Therefore we do not know where it would be available for purchase.
However it may go into production in the near future. If it does we will
inform you immediately.

We value your business and if you have any questions please do not hesitate
to ask me.

Best Regards,

Haruka Murakami
Yanko Design Sales Department
