LED Pillow Clock Wakes With Light, Not Sound

by Paul Strauss

Who among us really likes being awakened from a deep slumber by a jarring alarm buzzer? Sure, you could get yourself a clock radio or MP3 alarm clock and play some Enya or Kenny G to ease into the day, but who really wants to listen to that? This concept for a visual alarm clock could very well revolutionize the way we wake up.

LED Alarm Pillow by embryo

This simple, yet brilliant pillow alarm clock is designed to gently wake you by exposing your eyes to a glowing cloud of illumination, gradually increasing in brightness over a 40 minute period. Created by Ian Walton of embryo, in collaboration with Eoin McNally, the glo Pillow uses a cutting-edge LED fabric substrate below the pillow’s surface to work its magic.

Once you’ve been roused from your sleep, just lift your head, and the pillow displays the current time using an easy-to-read dot-matrix display that lives beneath the pillow case. The design also incorporates convenient controls built into a soft flap on the side of the pillow.

At this point, the glo Pillow is only a concept design, but I’m hoping that embryo eventually manages to gear up production for these.

    I wanna know how the electronics are arranged within the pillow. In high school, for an engineering class, i’m trying to make a pillow alarm clock that uses flat speakers. No light, but speakers. But I’m hitting such a wall that I cannot effectively arrange the electronics inside the fluff.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This is an awesome idea, the perfect replacement for the old-fashioned alarm clock.
    Is there any way to program it to make a loud repetitive sound alongside the lights so I will definitely wake up though? Also would it be possible to make it vibrate, like a phone? Then it would be perfect!
