There are all sorts of alarm clocks out there meant to wake you up with loud buzzers or what have you, but never have I seen one that interacts with other devices to thoroughly ensure you get out of bed. The Room Tech Beingz Alarm Clock makes all the sounds but the Mood Lamp (on the right) will also get involved if you fail to get up.
We've all seen those sound effect alarm clocks that are meant to act as white noise or to lull you to sleep with sounds of the rainforest. But the Osim Nioi Alarm Clock is taking the art of inducing sleepiness out of the auditory arena and into the realm of smell.
We’ve all seen the iPod dock/alarm clock combo before. That’s old news. But have you seen an iPod dock/alarm that rotates to accommodate the screen of your iPod Touch? Yeah, I don't think I have, either.
There have been several overly cruel alarm clocks pop up, the Sonic Boom alarm has been probably the worst, that is until now. This clock appears perfectly innocent, but it actually uses a bit of negative reinforcement to get your rear out of bed.
Every three minutes after it goes off, if you don't shut it off, it will make random phone calls from your cellphone. That's right, have a number you're hanging onto for sentimental reasons but would never call, it may get dialed.
Even worse is if you happen to wake up someone that wasn't ready to be awake yet. I'm fairly sure that this would be extremely effective to have you bolting to shut it off in time. This is still a concept design though, so the world is safe for the moment. It was created by Alice Wang.
German manufacturer sonoro audio's products will be available soon in the US. We first saw the company's cubo range of CD/MP3/radio units back at CES 2008, where sonoro revealed they were working on internet radio and iPod dock versions of the media player. The cubo will be available exclusively from saks.com priced at a rather large $349.99.
For some, mornings are a major issue, mostly the part where you have to wake up. I tend to have a slight problem with it as well, I seem to lack the will to actually wake up. However, this alarm clock might be just the thing to make you finally get out of bed.
It has an MP3 player, picture viewer, plays movies, tells you the time, shows a calendar, and will tell you what the temperature inside is. It also has an alarm clock feature built in so you can set it to wake you in the morning.
Alright, so imagine waking up with the crusties in your eyes, barely able to see, and you have to hit a bull’s eye on a target in order the shut of the noise from hell also known as your alarm clock. Well that’s pretty much what you have to do with this alarm clock.
