Regardless of age, hometown, or even home country, most people can recognize the Pac-Man characters in a split second (which makes sense considering it’s one of the most famous arcade games of all time.) Though the game originally made its debut in 1980, Pac-Man can still be found in Nintendo games, the Facebook messenger app, and of course, on countless merchandise.
One of the niftier pieces of Pac-Man merch is an officially licensed LED desk clock that does a lot more than tell time. It features a sleek screen of 512 vibrant LEDs that display animations of classic characters from the game, ranging from Mr. Pac-Man himself to the adorable Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde.
The animations are crystal clear and periodically float across the screen (about every 30 seconds), adding a bit of joy to a long day of frequently glancing at the clock and wondering how only four minutes have passed.
Though the clock is advertised as a desk clock, the brightness allows it to be seen from afar. The retro vibe not only make it a great personal gift for a gaming fanatic, but it can also add a fun, nostalgic touch to a common area at work or home.
