A team of designers from the University of Derby in the UK have developed this revolutionary product known as the 'Soft Touch' alarm clock. Not only is the aesthetic design of it pleasing, but so is the way that it wakes you up.

The base unit of the 'Soft Touch' alarm clock communicates with an inflatable wristband. Sending signals suggesting it's time to wake up, the wristband expands and squeezes gently on the wearer's wrist. The system is so intelligent that it can even be programmed to activate when the phone, doorbell and fire alarm goes off. Stats for Beepless Wake-Up Calls Trending: Older & Chilly
