This concept of a radio alarm clock which actually hangs above your bed, wakes you up in the morning by chiming. The only way to silence it is to reach up and gently tap it. The Sfera then slowly rises away from your reach, and causes you to stretch higher each time to gain another ten minutes of snooze time. Clever! When it reaches the ceiling, you have no option but to reach for it and drag it back down to your bed – an action which switches off the alarm and forces you to finally get up. Personally, this would be great because the snooze is my worst enemy. When you set the alarm, the glowing Sfera gradually dims and the music gently fades out as you drift off to sleep. This action initiates the snooze function but it also makes the Sfera rise above your head towards the ceiling. For sure something I hope comes out… a genuine idea for less late mornings.
