Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.
I can’t believe someone makes… An iPhone alarm toaster
Here’s a nice one. No, it is not intended that you toast your iPhone. Instead, it is an unusual design for an iPhone bedside clock that has been developed by Habitco – the “Day Maker Alarm Toaster iPhone Clock Dock”.
You can charge two iPhones while you sleep, apparently – already a niche product aimed at two-iPhone households, I notice – and, come alarm-time, a phone will pop up like a piece of toast, to the audio accompaniment of your custom playlist…
Thanks to Geeky-Gadgets for highlighting this one, but it isn’t in the shops just yet:
The Day Maker iPhone alarm clock by Habitco is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think it is something you could benefit from, jump over to the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the Day Maker iPhone alarm clock become a reality.
Actually, doesn’t Apple also have a “Toast” product? Could this new iPhone device be further integrated into Apple’s product-verse? Or was that Roxio? I’m getting confused. I think I need to lie down for a bit and have a little rest. I’ll just set my iPhone in the “toaster”…
