Posted in iPhone,iPhone Accessories by Tam Yue on March 6th, 2014

iPhone with Bacon AlarmThis could, quite possibly, be the greatest way to wake up, EVER! Oscar Mayer has created a device that attaches to your iPhone and when paired with the app, you will wake to the smell of frying bacon. Considering that we put bacon on and in everything anymore; doughnuts, sandwiches, bacon wrapped dates……Oscar Mayer apparently caught onto how much everyone loves the fried strips of heaven. The #bacon hashtag gets over 2 million mentions every year on Twitter.

You want one, admit it. The only way to get one is to go to their website and apply for one. They are not for sale, and the winners will be chosen at random. You can only apply from March 3 to April 4, 2014, so get on it. They have uploaded an artistic video to help promote the device, from …

Posted in Earbuds by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2011

Thanko comes up with a lot of strange gadgets, but at least this time it is something useful. This pair of earphones features an integrated alarm so if your music puts you to sleep, you can always wake yourself up again.

It’s probably most useful for travelers and commuters and anyone with narcolepsy. But if you tend to fall asleep while wearing your earphones a lot, you might want to listen to something more upbeat or drink some coffee.

How to get around the iPhone New Year alarm glitch

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2011

Apple’s iPhone alarm clock experienced a strange glitch with the new year and failed to wake users on New Year’s Day and January 2. This is caused by a bug that Apple still hasn’t fully explained, but the company did make a statement yesterday saying that the failure of its clock app only happens when you set a one-time alarm, and that it will somehow fix itself on January 3. However despite that, the problem still apparently exists.

So if you want to make sure that you wake up on time and don’t piss off your boss, here’s how to work around the problem until we get a proper fix.

Progress Bar Clock loads your day

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2009

Progress Bar Clock loads your dayIn a society that lives inside of their computers, it makes sense to incorporate some online features into our daily lives. Or maybe I’m just taking something that’s extremely geeky and trying to justify it. This concept from Mint Pass takes the familiar progress bar and turns it into a clock or timeline.

The orange tabs are labels that mark events for the current day. Just clip it onto the proper time and it’s there as a reminder. It’s a prototype and not for sale yet, but this one may have a chance at hitting the consumer market. The clock is equipped with 24 alarms that you can configure to sound at whichever time of day those tabs are placed.

Takara Tomy Clockman will wake you up

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2009

Takara Tomy Clockman will wake you upClockman is designed to wake you every morning with a bunch of annoying chat and goofy facial expressions. Go ahead and hit the snooze button. It won’t help. He doesn’t shut up. He doesn’t know how. Since Clockman speaks Japanese, we have no idea what the hell he is going on about.

It gets weirder. You’re supposed to choose a Clockman based on your blood type. AB, B, O and A versions. We have no idea why. Maybe it bonds with you and sucks your blood at night. Clockman arrives in Japan this September.

Yes. Pure unadulterated evil. So stay away from the Morning Countdown Clock if you want to have an actual ‘good’ morning. However if you like punishment, the Morning Countdown Clock is just $33.

iLuv unveils iPod alarm clock with bed shaker

Posted in Clocks by Shane McGlaun on June 23rd, 2009

iluvbedshaker-sbI have never been one to have a hard time getting up in the morning. My alarm goes off to music and I am up and about my day. My wife on the other hand could sleep through a tornado and never wake up. Her alarm usually wakes me up and then I have to shake her awake to get her to turn it off.

If you are the sort that needs more than a buzzer or music to wake up, the new iLuv iMM153 alarm clock with bed shaker for iPod may be just what you need. The clock supports all dockable iPods and has a 3.5mm auxiliary jack for the devices that can’t be docked.

Recording Can fridge guard/alarm

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

Recording Can fridge guard/alarmThis little gadget is supposed to look like a standard canned drink, so it can blend into the surroundings in your fridge. Even though no one would ever mistake it for a real drink called “Fridge Recorder”. It’s light activated, so whenever someone opens the fridge door, the recorded message of your choice will play.

Stuff Like, “Step away fatty!” or “Haven’t you had enough junk today? Look at that fat ass.” or even “Obey the fake drink can. The fake drink can is now your master.” If you have roommates, this might help to stop them from stealing your stuff. It’s likely to be entertaining for a full 5 minutes.


Echo Bot Voice Messenger is a geeky desk guard

Posted in Security by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

Echo Bot Voice Messenger is a geeky desk guardAt first glance the Echo Bot Voice Messenger looks like a webcam. It isn’t and it is designed to fool people in just that way. It’s really a motion detector that will guard your desk or cubicle from others who might intrude.

The idea is that you record messages that are triggered by the motion detector. Just record your message,(We would advise something nasty and filled with some particularly colorful metaphors about respecting your stuff) then let the motion detector do it’s thing. If your co-worker invades your space they are going to get a nasty surprise.

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009

Early Bird alarm clock wakes you with birdsong, reminds you that Twitter is waitingThe Early Bird alarm clock from Fred & Friends will wake you up gently with the sounds of birdsong. The little bird icon even glows, like some sweet avian angel of addiction, subtly reminding you that Twitter awaits on the intertubez.

This bird themed alarm is easy to set and comes with automatic snooze. Which I suppose beats a shotgun sound effect to quiet those birds.

Twitter Burglar Alarm tweets to let you know your stuff is being stolen

Posted in Security by Conner Flynn on February 11th, 2009

Twitter Burglar Alarm tweets to let you know your stuff is being stolenThis latest Arduino project turns it into a twitter home security system of sorts. The Arduino is used to monitor a home burglar alarm and send out status messages should the status change: Like when the alarm was activated or shut off, error messages, or just when the alarm actually sounds because you are being robbed.

The Arduino’s digital IO pins are wired up to the alarm’s output signals. An XBee wireless module was added, because the alarm control panel is some distance away from the ethernet hook-up, and a simple Linux server (with the USB XBee receiver) monitors any changes and sends the Twitter messages. @alarmdude By the time help gets here I’m gone. Left the zune on your desk.

Alarm clock forces you to play a game of Simon in the morning

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 6th, 2009

Alarm clock forces you to play a game of Simon in the morningWant to wake up in the morning only to have your brain trained with a retro memory game? Here’s the ticket. This alarm clock will not shut up until you play a version of the vintage game and get it right.

If you correctly remember the sequence of lights and press the buttons on the clock in the correct order, you can earn some peace and quiet, then either get out of bed or go back to sleep. On the other hand, you can always smash it to bits. I don’t see any info on price or availability.
