In our search for the best alarm clock, we came across this cool one.

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.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

    1. first off, its an alarm clock that retracts toward the ceiling every time you hit the snooze button. It hangs from above your bed so if you sit up really quickly when it goes off you may hit your head. It doesn’t look very heavy so it probably wont hurt much.
