Carpet Alarm Clock

June 26, 2007

There’s been quite a few ingenious alarm clock concepts of late. They all have one thing in common – force you to physically get up to turn them off. The Carpet Alarm Clock is a variation to that theme. In order to turn it off, you have to get up and step on it. If you really want to make it a challenge, place it far away from your bed. Of course it wouldn’t be a clock if it didn’t have and LCD screen to indicate time too.

Cable Carpet

February 2, 2007

 

I had this problem… I still have a bit of this problem as long as electricity can’t go wireless…

Cable Carpet connects two objects – carpet and cable. Pathways were shaved out of a carpet with a high structure. In these paths the cables can be put in and an attachment was necessary to avoid the cables poping out. A student’s project… brilliant.
