Clocks and timers are boring you say? Yes they are, and there are plenty of existing implementations. So, against intuition: let’s reinvent yet another egg timer to see how the idea twists with semi-analog circular LED-display-gauge-thingie.
Ok, so sandwiching a clock on clock wasn’t the greatest idea there – what would be the next marginally smarter idea? Adding wake up alarm! In the vast sea of alarm implementations there isn’t much to be celebrated in terms of unique and clever design. So going for the context around it: How about hose dark moments in the middle of night when one suddenly wakes up wondering if the alarm goes off at the next moment.
