Inflating Alarm Clock Pushes You Out Of Bed

Home  |  Clock
Jeff's "Princess and the Pea" alarm clock rigged an air compressor to lift up one side of a mattress when it’s time to wake up.
"No ordinary alarm clock: the Princess and the Pea Alarm Clock ("PPAC") leaves no room for snoozing, inflating a green "pea" between the mattress and box spring, making it impossible to stay in bed. In the tin can, a homemade Arduino-compatible board with clock and memory chips handles the alarm clock functions, and a power block under the night stand provides power and relays driving the sprinkler valve or other alarming alarm functions."

Home  |  Clock
Long-D Clock designed by Kit Men Keung for Taiwanese company Verso Lab.
This Long-D Clock has a dual time piece that displays twin time zones in a visually subtle manner. See the images again, actually it has secondary hand in a contrasting color that lets yo know the twin time zones. Cool design!
"Intended to allow users to read the times of twin time zones in a visually subtle style while maintaining a regular relationship with someone on the other side of the globe. The colour contrast of secondary clock hands have been delicately reduced to appear like a shadow on the interface acting as a conscious reminder of the distance between the user and their connections abroad. With a passing glance the user can quickly and easily attain the information from the clock.

The Sevres Vase Clock is is a new type of timepiece that tells the hour by tapping on the surface of a vase to produce sound. An adjustable hammer mechanism allows a variety of vases to be used, thereby permitting a range of chimes to be generated. By Georgios Maridakis.
An adjustable hammer gently knocks on any vase you place on the stand on the hour, every hour. Different vases produce different sounds so potentially every home’s clock looks and sounds different just from one device.

'Rewrite' Workstation by GamFratesi

Rewrite Workstation by GamFratesi

Rewrite Workstation by GamFratesi
Home  |  Furniture
'Rewrite' is a prototype desk by Copenhagen designers GamFratesi. You will hide in cave-like workstation while you woking.
"The idea behind Rewrite began as a study of the desktop and especially an atmosphere and feeling we believe is needed even in the middle of an accelerating communication and technology. Rewrite is thought of as a kind of isolating working bubble, that can work as a satellite desk anywhere one can feel the need of concentration and shielding – in open space offices, public spaces or at home. With its rounded shape it can be placed freely as dots in a room. A private base in the group without being a denial of it, but an addition to it causing an alternative.
In our design of the desktop Rewrite we have worked on creating a meeting between something well known and something surprising. The table is therefore traditional in its form and material, but when the big screen is added, both proportions and historical references are brought out of balance. In the table functional elements have been integrated as a white lacquered metal box, which is attached under the table in order to hide cables and transformers, and the cable exit in the tabletop is white lacquered too.
The screen is upholstered and covered with textile because of its visual and acoustic characteristics. It has a cave-like shape and creates a secure and intimate sphere, which partially closes out disturbing light and sounds. It has a double-sided acoustic function that protects against noise from the outside as well as from the inside. "
