BedBud Alarm

Opportunity

Getting out of bed can be one of the most difficult things you have to do. And the snooze button doesn’t really help either, since it allows you to delay getting out of bed for as long as you want to, but then you realize you’re already 2 hours late for work.  A smart alarm should know that you’re still in bed. It shouldn’t assume that a ringtone will wake you up when you only got 4 hours of sleep in the first place.

Solution

AtLast Industries has worked up a gadget, Bedbud, that is inserted underneath the mattress of your bed. When installing it you use the phone application to calibrate the weight of the mattress as it lies above it. Set the alarm and you’re good to go, you may even leave your phone outside your room. 

When it’s time to wake up, the alarm will ring for as long as there is the extra weight over the device, so the only solution for turning it off is to actually get out of bed. And no, you cannot trick it by getting out of bed then in again as it is smarter than your snooze button. Watch the video released by the creators here.
