Many of us use annoying alarm clocks to wake up in the morning. If you need a gentler solution, you may want to give the Wake a look. This is a smart robot that mounts to the wall behind your bed and works with your smartphone to wake you up. It simulates sunrise and uses a parametric speaker to do the job without disturbing your partner.
The Wake uses your body heat to determine your location. It uses focused beams of light and sound to wake you up. The companion app lets you choose how you want to wake up and tell the device which side of the bed you sleep. Like what you see? You can support it on Kickstarter.
