Monday morning is often a rude awakening, especially with an obnoxious alarm jarring you out of sleepy-time paradise. That must be why designers keep flirting with the idea of a silent vibrating alarm clock for two, complete with twin vibrating wrist bands that let your bedmate keep sleeping if you’re getting up earlier.
This one’s called Silence, with a pleasing, simple design esthetic that stays out of your way and good vibrations that won’t scare you out of bed every morning. We first saw this idea last year in a shiny design that we liked a little better than this, but still, the concept is long overdue in the real world. Maybe this time a consumer electronics company will be motivated to actually turn this into a shipping product.
