The past meets the present with the launch of this eye-catching Disney Alexa-powered Mickey Mouse Echo wall clock.
A retro Mickey Mouse clock, which in itself might be worth mentioning on these pages. After all, Mickey Mouse is an icon of animation and when it comes to child-friendly design, Mickey has been omnipresent for decades.
But this isn’t just a Mickey Mouse clock. You might have worked that one out from the title.
This retro wall clock is actually based around the Amazon Echo concept, with Mickey’s arms moving around the clock to read the hours and minutes and with 60 LED markers lighting up to alert users of any timers that might have been set.
It also keeps track of any alarms, reminders and notifications that have been set and uses Alexa technology to keep you organised. In fact, Alexa makes it easy to get started too. Just say ‘Alexa, set up my Echo Wall Clock’ and it works like a dream. Just as long as you have fitted the AA batteries into it.
Even as a wall clock the $49.99 price might have been reasonable. But add in the technology and it’s something of a bargain. One problem right now though. The Mickey Mouse Echo wall clock is only available at Amazon in the US. So try there or wait for UK Amazon to start stocking it.
