How many people use digital alarm clock of their smartphones? According to the designer Simon Michel, a lot of people. His design study “Awake” is the response to bright dazzling smartphone displays, and the search for the snooze button.
When we think of clock radio, most people think of a plastic box with buttons and an LC display. In times of Full HD Smartphone displays that are filled with colorful apps, the incentive to buy a classic digital alarm clock is becoming increasingly smaller. The designer Michel Simon asked himself what makes a clock radio interesting for a young group of people. During his research Michel found out that smartphone design for many young people is an absolute all-rounder. Of course, it can wake you up like a classic digital alarm clock. However, using a smartphone as an alarm clock has its own disadvantages, for example the big bright display can hurt your eyes by reading the time at night. It is also not easy to operate the snooze button, because sometimes the design forces you to open another menu. If digital alarm clocks should remain interesting in the future, then there should be a solution for these problems.
