Tired of waking up, wondering what time it is, because your eyes are too crappy, and you're too lazy to move the clock closer to your bed?

This is a digital clock equipped with eye tracking, so it can detect when someone is looking at it. Upon which it projects an image of the current time directly into the user's eyes, not unlike how a digital projector projects a sharp image from across the room. Might make for a great alarm clock or dream inducer, too.

       set up the clock with a lens system that constantly and randomly changes focus. the deluxe version includes astigmatism correction.

       Can they do that these days? I haven't seen any examples of direct-on-retina displays yet, and I'm too lazy to Google it.

       She: Shad up. You don't have to go to work now, that that stupid clock has blinded you. Again!

       [+] pretty good, I like [sinctown]'s idea, too. I was thinking that it had a diopter like my camera, so I could just set it for my eyes.
