If you are anything like me, you do not find anything as annoying as being jolted awake by a high-pitch electronic sound in the morning. Today, we bring you a soothing alternative. “Silence” is a conceptual alarm clock that will wake you up without emitting any sound. If you need to be awoken, you simply wear a special wireless rubber ring. When the designated alarm time comes, the clock will send a signal to the ring which will generate a tactile alarm. If you wish to continue your sleep, just shake your hand to activate the snooze function. As time goes on, further snoozes will be harder to generate, requiring more vigorous shaking each time.

Alarm clocks usually jolt us awake leading us to reach for the almighty snooze button. Silence is a conceptual alarm clock that allows you to program multiple alarms and wakes you without any sound. Each person wears a wireless rubber ring with an integrated vibration device that generates a tactile alarm. The snooze function is engaged by shaking your hand. However, each successive time you want to snooze, more movement is required, making sure you get to work on time.

    This is weird. I wonder if it really works? I would probably think it was a mosquito and ignore it…

    A real alarm clock is an old brass job with bells on it left on a wooden floor on the opposite side of the room under an old zinc alloy bucket. That thing gets you up really “making sure you get to work on time”.
