Alarm Clock Coffee Maker Wakes You Gradually
Designer Josh Renouf’s alarm clock coffee maker may not make the idea of getting out of bed any more inviting, but at least you’ll be able to give yourself a quick pick-me-up first. His ‘Barisieur’ melds perhaps our two most essential morning devices, the coffee maker and the alarm clock, allowing us those precious few extra minutes of relaxation and slumber.
Josh’s coffee maker alarm clock will even ease you into the day rather than jolting you out of your dreams with a screech. It works using stainless steel ball bearings to subtly boil the water through the use of induction heating. As you sleep, a cup of coffee is brewed for you which will be hot and ready to drink just as you are awaken.
But Josh’s coffee brewing alarm won’t just help you wake — he also speculates it will help you fall asleep. Since the only input needed from you for your morning cup is loading the ingredients the night before, Josh believes the ritual of preparing the brewer the night before will serve as a signal to your mind and body that it is time to start to unwind and prepare for sleep.
