Pandora Alarm Clock For Chronic Snoozers

The alarm clock seems to be quite a popular target for product designers, and I’m sure it must have something to do with mankind’s love/hate relationship with the device that wakes us from our blissful slumbers each morning. Melanie Graf, a Product Design student at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London has added yet another creative twist with her Pandora alarm clock.

Once you hit the snooze button, an animation will be laser projected onto the ceiling above your bed. After drifting off to sleep, you’ll be awakened once again with a bunch of different sounds. When you open your eyes and look up at the ceiling, you’ll see a series of animations which reflect what you should actually be doing as part of your morning routine, instead of sleeping in. And if you keep hitting the snooze button, the animations will eventually reflect the catastrophic consequences if you don’t get out of bed. While I understand the device is designed to ‘guilt’ you out of bed in the morning, it would take a lot more than an animated catastrophe to get me up.

    The name got me all excited thinking it was a clock radio that connected to Pandora.com.

    Think of the possibility. Every time you hit snooze, it plays a lower and lower rated song, forcing you to get out of bed for sheer hatred of the music.

    That’s exactly why I keep my alarm’s radio tuned to whatever the popular station in town is. Not having to hear that crap every 5 minutes is enough incentive to get up.
