When I used to say alarm clocks were the bane of my existence.

The best alarm clock ever. Brilliant. Great design. Period.

Out of a project named Strangely Familiar, a collection of domestic devices redesigned to provide simpler, more meaningful and poetic interactions.

Great ideas seem to always come out of those people who went to Savannah College of Art and Design.

In the evening, after you\’ve set the alarm, the glowing Sfera gradually dims and the music fades as you drift off to sleep. When the alarm chimes in the morning, you must reach up and tap the Sfera to silence it. Which triggers the snooze function and makes the alarm rise higher. As it slowly rises away from your reach, you must stretch higher each time to gain another ten minutes of snooze.

  1. Heh, my roommate could use that. Is it simply the action of pulling the alarm clock down enough to turn it off? If that\’s the case, couldn\’t one learn, after a few times of tapping, to pull it on the first chime? I suppose one could dangle it out of reach in the first place, maybe on the opposite side of the room as well as high enough so that you\’d have to do a little jump to reach it on the first try. (I do see the potential problem of it going too high so that you end up ripping the thing off the ceiling by accident during one of your attempts to turn it off.)
