The Philips Wake-Up Light is one of my favorite alarm clocks, but I never picked one up because of the price . Check out this TEAC alarm clock dock for iPhones, which promises to do almost the same thing as the Philips clock, at a more reasonable cost.
Philips even makes make a Wake-Up Light with an iPhone dock, but the Wake-to-Light iPhone Alarm clock looks like a nice alternative – if you don’t mind its boxy, linear style. For those of you dubious of how this works, here are the details: 30 minutes before you are supposed to wake up, the light starts getting brighter progressively. This triggers hormones in your body, linked with the circadian rhythm. It’s supposed to be a very smooth and natural way of waking up – especially in a darkened room.
