95 Tools to Streamline Your Morning Routine

From Hands-Free Hair Dryers to Mobile Coffee Brewers

— September 4, 2015 — Art & Design
These high-tech devices help you streamline your morning routine. Whether you are a morning person or not, getting ready for the day can often be a chaotic process. These clever devices help you simplify your morning rituals and get you out the door on time.

In order to streamline your morning routine, you have to start the day off on the right foot. Rather than waking up groggy and tired, there are a number of devices that help you rise from a deep slumber in a peaceful way. Some of these innovative alarms include sunrise-simulating clocks, nature-imitating alerts and sleep enhancing machines.

Beyond simply waking up on time, most people's mornings involve a number of other important tasks. To make mornings run as smoothly as possible, there are devices designed to simplify everything from showering to making a cup of coffee. For example, there are interactive bathroom mirrors that allow you to check the weather while brushing your teeth. There are also multitasking kettle toasters that allow you to prepare your coffee and breakfast at the same time.
