Verilux Rise & Shine Natural Alarm Clock
We already covered a great amount of alarm clocks with the most special ones being the Grenade and the Flying alarms, these two really make you get out of bed in order to turn the alarm off so you can start the 10 minute siesta before bath/breakfast. Another honorable mention goes to the Rev-Olution alarm that fits the car fanatics style and I’m sure they love it.
But… enough talking about other alarm clocks, so lets start today’s subject – the Verilux Rise & Shine Natural Alarm Clock.
As you can see on the image this is a 2-in-1 gadget that combines a stylish bedside lamp + alarm clock (it can be considered a 3-in-1 gadget since you can listen to radio as well.), this means that you will probably save space on your bedside table, and money too. Actually scratch that money detail because this Verilux Alarm Clock costs $150 which I consider to be very expensive for an alarm clock.
There are 2 special features that caught my attention, I hope they get yours too:
- the use of nature sounds to wake you up instead of the “beep-beep” sound that other normal alarms have, there are 8 beautiful sounds like ocean surf, spring rain and song birds
- after setting up the alarm clock with the desired hour of when-to-wake-up, the time will come and the lamp will gradually brighten its lights, the same effect happens with the sound that will increase the volume
The Verilux Rise & Shine Natural Alarm Clock comes in 2 colors: ivory (similar to bleach) and graphite (dark blue/black), it’s available at the Verilux Online Shop.
PS – Just in case you are wondering what kind of alarm clock the Coolest Gadgets writers have, mine is a simple Sony with radio that was bought 10 years ago and still works like it was new, it’s nothing fancy but does the job perfectly.
