Turning on the alarm, on the Acoustic Alarm clock
Setting the alarm time on the Acoustic Alarm
The Acoustic Alarm is a one-off alarm clock, that uses a motorized pic to pluck guitar strings in order to wake its user.
We’ve heard about alarm clocks that jolt you awake with 113 decibels of sound while shaking your bed, that won’t stop ringing until you’ve done your exercises, or that you have to chase across the room. If you want to be woken in a more civilized, serene fashion, however, you might like the Acoustic Alarm – should it ever become commercially available, that is. Instead of an annoying beep, buzz or radio DJ, the one-off design exercise uses a motorized pic to strum four guitar strings, in order to gently rouse its user.
