Innovative Alarm Clocks

Posted on April 17, 2007  Comments (2)

I heard about clocky last year on NPR and again last week. Gauri Nanda, designed clocky while a student at MIT – an alarm clock that runs and hides so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. She has since manufactured them and now you can buy your very own mobile clock.

There is also the April Fools joke, SnÅ«zNLÅ«z – Wifi Donation Alarm Clock, but I think people would really buy it. “Connects via WiFi to your online bank account, and donates YOUR real money to an organization you HATE when you decide to snooze!”

    Great idea! Not so suprising that an MIT student came up with it. You go girl!

    This reminds me of my college roommates alarm at UCLA in the 90’s (pre WIFI). It had her dad’s voice recorded on it yelling “Get up. This is costing me a fortune.” She had him change the message every time she went home. It was a funny alarm system for both of us.
