This iPhone alarm dock by Sam Lloyd takes the iconic form of an alarm clock and updates it for the digital age. There are many sleek docks to hold your iPhone and this inventive form plays with old and new forms. Although this type of alarm clock design has disappeared due to the convenience of using do-it-all phones used as alarm clocks, this jarring way to wake up has made a resurgence in this design.

The simple wireframe dock has two bells like you'd see on a round vintage alarm clock. Though Lloyd has cleverly taken advantage of use of a phone's ability to vibrate to activate this alarm. This iPhone alarm dock might not be the most pleasant way to wake up in the morning, but it will sure be effective. Stats for Nostalgic Phone Alarm Docks Trending: Older & Warm
