Alarm Clocks

Lumo Projection Alarm Clock

No need to turn your head to see the time with this little Lumo Projection Alarm Clock. It features a rotating arm which projects the time on the wall or on the ceiling. A digital diplay on the front shows the time and the alarm time (when it’s set), so you can quickly do the math on how many hours of sleep you have ahead of you.

Titan LED Clock Radio

A clock radio? What, is it 1985? That’s what you’re thinking, but, trust me, this one has all the bells and whistles that you’d want, without the pesky overview of emails and appointments your phone flashes at you every single time you pick it up. Also, did you know that looking at a bright screen at night to check the time can disrupt your sleep? Smartphones are full of small catastrophes, aren’t they? So, rethink that 1985 reference and pay attention.

DesignWright’s Titan LED Clock Radio has the LED display within the speaker grill, which softens the numbers to a pleasing glow. Yes, there’s the AM/FM settings, snooze bar, an auto-dimmer, six recordable radio stations, electronic volume, a telescopic antenna, and an MP3 amplifier, but all you really care about it that it looks cool.

Nimbus Dashboard

Not that you need to be more connected, but this 4-dial dashboard will help you track what’s important. It’s customizable, so you get to pick what info it displays- it’ll wake you up, but maybe you also want to know the weather, how many emails you have, what the morning traffic is like, or just what day it is… the Nimbus will show you it all via each dial/barometer. It syncs in real time, so the data will be accurate. Maybe that means you’ll pick up your phone less? We can hope. Think of it as a desk top accompaniment or a bedside starting point.

The Alarming Clock

Here’s a different sort of alarm clock whose sound depends entirely on what you put in front of it. Huh? The signal sounds like a woodpecker drumming against a tree, but if you put a vase of water, or some other vessel or surface, against the ‘beak’ or nose, then you’ll create a different sound. Unfortunately, it’s available only to residents in the UK or Europe, but you can put your name on the waiting list if you live elsewhere. Watch the video below to hear/see an example.

Snooze

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve dropped my phone while trying to turn off my alarm in the mornings- it’s got to be in the hundreds by now (coordination is impaired when you’re half asleep, after all). That’s where this alarm dock comes in- it’s got a huge, functioning snooze bar that’s easily hit when you want just a few more minutes of shut eye.

Punkt AC01 Alarm Clock

United Kingdom-based designer Jasper Morrison presents a modern spin on the traditional analog alarm clock that’s so striking in its simplicity and aesthetics that it’ll make you want to ditch your cell phone as your alarm clock. A clever manual switch activates the alarm and the status will be clearly displayed on the dial. A gentle squeeze of the clock illuminates the face. Glow-in-the-dark hands displays the time in any light setting. These very user-friendly features coupled with a solid aluminum casing and scratch-resistant glass lens makes for a properly designed and lust-worthy object.

Alarm Dock

At first glance, this looks like an old faux wood grain alarm clock, but look a little closer and you’ll see an iPhone. Since almost everyone uses their cell phones as alarm clocks nowadays, Jonas Damon made this dock to allow for an iPhone to appear as the display, which means a more substantial form on your bedside table. Phone, of course, is not included.

Available for pre-order.

To:Ca Mini and 10 Digit Wood Clock

It was impossible not be charmed by the To:Ca Wood Clock when it was first introduced in 2002. After a few years and many many imitations later, designer Kouji Iwasaki has come up with the most obvious solution to refresh the design of the clock: make it available in different sizes. The Mini, as it sounds, measures at 6 inches wide, while the 10 Digit model expands to 15 inches.  The extended width makes room for a calendar, a new feature for the series. It’s also the first model to feature an alarm clock, which of course is an improvement, though you need to have a large enough bedside table that can accomodate it. The 10 Digit sells for $240 and the Mini at $120. I’ve only seen it available at a Japanese retailer, so if you see it anywhere else for sale please chime in below in the comments section.
