Smash Clock – wake up, releasing the stress every morning

There are so many examples of successful product design, which ingeniously envisages functionalities, corresponding to the real human behavior and the Smash Alarm clock promises just about that. Designed by Matthias Lange, the Smash Clock is a conceptual device tending to release the frustration of waking up every morning by the alarm beep. You know, you don’t necessarily need to go to work, you’re getting stressed, you want to smash that little beeping thing and you certainly will do it at some point – it’s just a matter of time, work and irritating everyday factors.
You have to hit the top surface of the Smash Clock to switch the alarm off and with the time being the deformation will become a sign of how you’ve precisely used it – some sort of artificial intelligence will track the damage and bring the device out of order when everything gets too far.

I completely adore the idea and will get the clock once it hits the market with the only clause that it will snooze while just pressed.

CLOCKY - rise and shine with this playful alarm clock

creative lifestyle products

Life is life, we live and work, we work for living and we need to go to work - life philosophy is that simple. The whole process however is related to the tiny everyday practice - waking up. This is a nightmare experience - everybody will confirm it, especially the "night birds". Going out of the bed requires inhuman efforts every single morning - you get used to your alarm, the snoozes are not working effectively and at the end you are late again. Not anymore.

Clocky is one of these handy solutions which makes a huge sense in our self organization process. What will be better than a tricky body wake up forcing? Perhaps something, not invented yet, but Clocky is here, right now - alarm clock that runs away and hides when you don't wake up - merciless and dodgy. You have only one chance to get up, if you miss to snooze, Clocky will jump off of your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide. Then it will alarm the hell out of its batteries, until you move your ass and turn it off. In the middle of this physical effort your sleep will be gone, you will become wide awake and ready to rock. Clever uh?

These are some of the invaluables toy features:

  • Set your snooze time, 0-9 min
  • Snooze once before he runs away
  • Choose 0 and he runs right away
  • Can jump from up to 3 feet
  • Moves on wood and carpet
  • Press snooze to view time at night
  • Screen flashes when beeping/running
  • Alarm beeps in random pattern
  • Clocky is small: 5.25" x 3.5" x 3.5"
  • Want him to stay put? Disable wheels.
  • Early low battery warning
  • Colors: almond white, aqua and mint and soon in mustard orange!
