Retracting Alarm Clock
Clearly you remember the Blowfly alarm clock? More practical for actual production is the Sfera alarm clock. The clock is hung above the bed and emits a gentle glow when the alarm is reached, naturally awakening you from sleep. Hitting the snooze button will cause the alarm clock to retract towards the ceiling. With each subsequent push of the snooze, the Sfera retracts closer towards the ceiling, finally forcing you to rise out of bed to shut it off. The alarm clock also illuminates in 3 colors to indicate ambient, radio or alarm use. The radio’s frequency can be changed by twisting the sphere. Hayat Benchenaa and Garikoitz Iruretagoiena, the designer of the Sfera, managed to develop two working prototypes. No word if it will go into production.
