Thanko EARINALM is the World’s First Earphones With Built-in Alarm Clock
Thanko has unveiled a unique pair of headphones that come with built-in alarm functionality. Hailed as EARINALM, these earphones pack in an alarm, stopwatch and a calendar pretty neatly into a stack that weighs just 21 grams. It is powered by a built-in battery that can be refilled via the USB port. I am using there is going to be the standard 3.5mm jack here to ensure compatibility with a host of gadgets. I wonder why did the company still fall for iPhone of all gadgets even for representation purposes. It is available in Japan for a price of $36. No word on how soon this be touching the western shores.
