Shake’N Awake

Shake'N Awake

For the course Aesthetics of Interaction

Waking up to the beeping sound of your alarm clock may not always be the most enjoyable moment of the day. For people having a harder time waking up, an alarm clock that makes noise may not be enough. Focusing on different senses can be a solution.

Shake’N Awake is an alarm clock bedside table that uses vibrations to wake you up and at the same time create patterns on the table. To set the time you simply place sand on top of the table, the weight will be transferred to time which will be shown on the clock. When it’s time to wake up in the morning the alarm clock will start to vibrate, thereby creating patterns with the sand you put on the table the night before.
