The Alarm Glock By Twoedesign

Recommended Posts

As 2 product design students, (Ewan Baird and Ellen Constable) we were given a brief to create a meaningful interactive product that used programmable technology. We chose to programe an arduino and a series of solenoids to play a glockenspiel which would is designed around an interchangeable clock face. The face displays different reminders for throughout the day.

 

Initially, we wanted to just make it an amram clock to wake the user in the morning but after research, we found that people liked the idea of alarms going off throughout the day even if they are not in.

 

The final result is our Alarm Glock, a quirky alarm clock that reminds you of your daily tasks and creates a happy atmosphere in your home.

 

This is our blog where you can see our progress throughout the project and the final pictures and release of the product.
