Imagine being woken up by the smooth smell of fresh coffee being brewed.

The Barisieur alarm clock does exactly that. “It eases you into the day with the subtle movement of stainless steel ball bearings that boil the water through induction heating.” All you have to do is set it up the night before, by adding coffee and water.

This type of invention is there to solve the problems that come with a harsh wake up — you know, like the blaring alarm on your phone. With the Barisieur, the metal balls gently hit each other, making the noise to wake you up. The clock is still in the later stages of development, but you can sign up for email alerts when it will become available.


Our solution for early mornings may finally be here.
