This contemporary version of the age old Cuckoo Clock is not only designed with a modern flare, it's also got some modern convenience built into it. Just like the cuckoo clocks of yore, it's got an annoying bird that pops out every so often to announce the time. But this version comes equipped with a light sensor, so when the room is dark, the bird is silent. The clock itself is a mixture of wood and PVC, and sells for (youch!) $484. Batteries are included, as is a volume control for your new feathered friend.
