Beddi smart alarm clock can call you an Uber

Beddi smart alarm clock can call you an Uber

If you've stayed in a hotel in the past couple of years, you've probably seen them: alarm clock speaker docks, complete with a now-useless 30-pin docking connector. Innovation in nightstand docks for your iPhone seemed to pretty much dry up when Apple ditched its original port in favor of Lightning, but Witti is hoping to change all that.

SensorWake alarm clock lets you wake up to smells of your choice

Having to wake up early in the morning sucks, and it doesn't matter whether your alarm is a loud buzzing noise, or music of your choice from your smartphone. But the SensorWake alarm clock at least wants to wake you up differently: by smell instead of sound. Currently on Kickstarter with a goal or raising $55,000, the SensorWake lets users choose the scent they'd like to wake them up, from the smell of coffee to chocolate, thanks to changeable and reusable cartridges.

Wakē alarm targets only one sleeper with a beam of light, sound

Wakē alarm targets only one sleeper with a beam of light, sound

When one person in a room has to get up at a certain time, it generally means everyone has to get up at that time, as an alarm clock knows no mercy and blesses all equally with the song of its people. There are some alternatives — vibrating wrist bands tend to be the latest favorite, but some aren’t so fond of them, either. Waking up to a gradual light is the least startling, but it has the same problem as sound…everyone is exposed to it. The Wakē alarm is different; it uses the same gradual light functionality as sun-simulators and such, but is designed only to shine on the person who needs to get up.

Coolest Clock is a smartphone-connected projection clock

Coolest Clock is the wall-mounted projection display that you never realized you needed. It's up for crowdfunding on Indiegogo and has blown its goals out of the water, reeling in over $230,000 USD when its original goal was only $20,000 USD. This device looks sleek and compact while projecting all kinds of up-to-the-minute live info like weather, social media, and news. It also tells time, but I'm sure you have something in your arsenal of devices that can already do that. If you want to buy Coolest Clock, it's not to tell time. You would buy it for its live projection screen update of information, and of course, because it's the Coolest Clock out there.

Groundhog Day alarm clock: hacked until real

Groundhog Day alarm clock: hacked until real

It'll only be a matter of time before a clever device-making group makes this alarm clock to do what we're seeing it hacked to do here, but until then, there's this. This is the Groundhog Day Alarm Clock, as made by creative constructor Randofo. This is a Panasonic RC-6025 flip clock, the same model used in the Bill Murray film Groundhog Day. Here it's been broken apart and re-constructed to do exactly what it does in the film - play the same song from the same "radio station" every time you wake up.

Ramos alarm clock forces you to wake up with portable beacon

Ramos alarm clock forces you to wake up with portable beacon

Some people have a lot of trouble getting out of bed in the morning, and for that reason a nearby snooze button is its own sort of addiction. Ramos is a smart alarm clock designed specifically for these non-morning people, forcing users to get out of bed by limiting how many times the snooze button can be hit before they have to get up and take their phone to a paired off-site beacon. Bringing one's phone and the beacon together allows one to enter the "defuse code", which finally, mercifully, silences the alarm.

ALARMclock dishes sobering stats to get you out of bed

ALARMclock dishes sobering stats to get you out of bed

Getting out of bed when the alarm clock goes off is sometimes an unattainable goal, and everyone has found a legitimate excuse to hit the snooze button at least once. This is arguably because an annoying sound is not incentive enough to drag one's self to the coffee maker, and such is where the ALARMclock comes in. Having about tripled its Kickstarter goal with a week remaining, the idea behind the device seems to be popular: offering up sobering information as incentive to wake up.
