Designer Joel Escalona has created Seven, an alarm clock that won a Volvo for Life Design Award. It’s mostly a regular (although rather bulky) alarm clock, with one exception – it will continue trying to wake you up until it sees you moving around.
The alarm clock will begin to play a selected MP3 tune when it’s time to wake up. If its motion sensor sees you lying still, it will continue to raise the volume of the music until you (and possibly a few neighbors) are awake.
Seven also shows the outside temperature and humidity on its display.
This concept is a great way to wake up the heavy sleepers among us. I know a friend or two who could definitely use one of these alarms. If only it wasn’t so huge.
