Inventor Receives Dreamy Inspiration

LYNWOOD, Ill (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Necessity is the mother of invention, but a man in Lynwood, Illinois, is proving all it takes to invent a masterpiece is a good night’s sleep.

That’s exactly where David King came up with his idea for a hip-hop wall clock – a clock programmed to play today’s hottest hip-hop tracks on the hour.

Turns out, a famous R&B singer visited King in his dream and told him to not waste time and create the clock.

King explains, “Usher came to me in a dream holding a clock with his picture on it and said ‘My picture’s not right. Go get it right.”

King woke up and put his big and little hands to work and the rest is history.

And while King hopes hip-hop lovers boogie to the beat of his clocks, he also imagines his invention up on kids’ walls, right next to posters of their favorite musicians. So far, King’s dreams are all coming true, as his clock is getting some serious test-runs at home from some important consumers.

He says, “My kids dance to the songs all the time.”

King will debut his hip-hop clocks at INPEX – America’s Largest Invention Show – in Pittsburgh starting June 6.
