Check out this clock radio called the Minute Glass! In short, an eco-friendly magnetically induced alarm clock. Different plus irritating at the same time! It’s different because: it uses magnetic induction, so there is no need for batteries or electricity. It wakes you up with some music, and can also be used as a bedside LED flashlight during night.
Its irritation because: the alarm won’t turn off until you’ve shaken it well enough to power it for the next day. That means the designer (Colin Roberts) would be remember day in and day out. Well, someday for an eco-friendly design, and sometimes for a stupid creation. Choice is yours – would you buy this?
