Check out this 'time-table' that doubles as a digital clock:
Electro-luminescent film creates the digit segments, allowing the table top thickness to be kept to a minimum. The table includes an alarm and a timer to automatically switch off at night.
Interesting as a novelty, but probably useless once your friends have seen it more than once.
I still like it though.
