If someone were to ask me exactly what I dislike the most about my daily routine, I would probably say “when my alarm clock goes off in the morning.” None of us can probably say we enjoy waking up to the blaring sound of our alarm each and every morning as we lay in our soft, comfortable beds. As for myself, I have a tendency to check my clock every 10 minutes, trying my hardest to avoid the spook of my screaming clock.
What if there was a better way? Many inventions have come about over the years, including alarms that play much more pleasant sounds, as well as those which vibrate our beds, or wake us up by gradually increasing the level of light in our rooms. For one company, ACROBOTIC Industries and its Founder/CTO Francisco Zabala, they recently came up with a product called the Pulsar which is a “smart, wireless, wearable LED pixel” device.
“The Pulsar is a wearable electronic device that allows you to wirelessly control bright, colorful LEDs from any computer or mobile! It includes a rechargeable, long-lasting, pocket-sized battery, a tiny microcontroller with Bluetooth LE, a real-time clock, and 24 smart, multi-colored (RGB) LEDs,” Zabala explains.
In fact, the Pulsar is currently available for purchase via an ongoing Kickstarter campaign, starting at just $35. In order to show some of the benefits that the Pulsar can provide and some things it can be used for, ACROBOTIC recently teamed with Deezmaker 3D Printers to create quite the unique and clever alarm clock. One which I certainly know I will be using in the future.
“We developed a 3d-printed night lamp that can be programmed as a soundless alarm clock from any bluetooth-capable device,” Zabala tells us. “This is merely [one] example of what we’ve built with this brand new device. We’re excited to see what will you create!”
Using the Pulsar app, the alarm clock can be manually set to display different colors and different brightness levels. Certainly it would need to be place in a position by one’s bed in order to effectively cast enough light toward your face in order to wake you up.
With the Kickstarter campaign set to end toward the end of September, it should be interesting to see all of the ideas that people come up with to utilize Pulsar along with other 3D printed elements. I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more from the Pulsar in the near future. What do you think about Pulsar and the unique 3D printed soundless alarm clock?
