Concept alarm clocks that re-invent the old faithful clock

By  | 

Gone are the days when we used to wake up to the incessant ringing of the traditional alarm clock. The more recent alarm clocks come with stunning designs and equally stunning features to ensure that you wake up without getting a headache. Here are some of those concepts, which could very well be real products very soon.

If you are a lazy sleeper, then the Pedro Gomes Sleepy Alarm Clock is just what you need. It is shaped like a ball and comes with an interesting feature. Instead of the standard ‘snooze’ option in normal alarm clocks, the Pedro alarm comes with a ‘lazy’ option that lets you activate the alarm’s snooze mode by simply moving the clock to and fro. And the interesting part? The harder you shake the ball, the longer the snooze time would last. This way, you can definitely get that extra bit of sleep you yearn for in the mornings, and be ready to get up after a few vigorous shakes of the alarm clock.

 The Brain Teaser Alarm Clock

Some of us tend to keep on switching the alarm to snooze mode only to wake up hours later and realize we are late for a meeting or event. Enter the Brain Teaser Alarm Clock that would kick-start your brain first thing in the morning, to the point that you won’t be able to sleep again.

The alarm clock comes with a set of built in IQ questions that would appear one by one on an LCD display when the alarm starts ringing. You would need to answer these questions correctly. The only way to turn off the alarm would be to answer at least 1-3 questions in a set. By the time you find the answers to these questions, you would be fully awake to sleep off again. Now how about that for an early morning boost?

This concept alarm clock would literally hug your iPhone. Made out of carved wood sans any paint, dye or moving parts, the alarm clock comes in different handmade designs, including a flip alarm clock, a kitchen radio and even a vintage television that would house your iPad. Not much pretty on the functional side, these alarm clocks make up for it in the design quotient.

 Money Shredder Alarm Clock

Ouch! This is definitely one of those alarms you need to wake up to. If not, you risk having your hard-earned money shredded into pieces. The Money Shredder Alarm Clock has a simple but clear message; if you snooze, you lose. You need to place a bill in the so-called trap before hitting the bed at night. If you don’t wake up to the alarm the next morning, it would activate the shredder which would do its job nearly unless you intervene in time.

 Revive Alarm Clock

Revive Alarm Clock

This concept alarm clock works on the principle that the human body reacts to sounds and sunlight in the morning. It therefore incorporates these features to lull a person to wake up peacefully instead of ringing a bell and forcing them to wake up with a headache. The alarm clock comes fitted with a smart device that would integrate the alarm with a light and sound feature. When it’s time to wake up, the alarm simply starts replicating the morning light that enters the room, and gives off the same sounds you would expect to hear in the mornings.

Blowfly Alarm Clock

Here’s one for you sleepyheads. The Blowfly Alarm Clock comes fitted with a small plastic propeller on top. This propeller is launched into the air amidst a wailing sound as soon as the alarm goes off. The only way to stop the alarm? Catch the propeller and place it back on the clock.

Summary

Considering our penchant for hitting the snooze button rather than wake up, modern alarm clocks have included features that would make it difficult to ignore the alarm and continue sleeping.
