“Morning is wonderful. Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of day.” ~ Glen Cook, Sweet Silver Blues
There's that good feeling and luxury of waking up naturally after a good night’s sleep, and then there is the other one — the one most of us endure on work days. The alarm clock blares its annoying repetitive siren, and we sit up, stock still as if a prison bell has just called us for cell check. Or your phone’s iTunes or old-fashioned clock radio suddenly plays The Heart of Rock and Roll in your ear and your day begins with auditory terror as if a cruel joke was just perpetrated on you.
Finally, one tech company has figured out a kinder, gentler wake-up method so that instead of letting those curse words fly as the first ones you utter, you wake with a drowsy smile — or at least without a grumpy look on your face.
Using a crowdfunding campaign, Paris-based firm Sensorawake, which originally introduced the concept in 2015, has now come up with Trio, a tiny alarm clock that eases you into waking up by slowly stimulating your sense of smell, sight, and hearing — as if waking up was merely a part of the dream that led to that 6 am rousing time. It’s a 3-minute, 3-step process that gradually wakes you up on the right side of the bed and starts your day with less trauma.
Trio’s first minute entices your sense of smell with nine different types of scents. Imagine having your eyes still tightly shut but breathing in scents like a pine forest, rose garden, seaside, chocolate factory, orange juice, and cappuccino. You can choose a scent cartridge based on your mood developed by Swiss fragrance company Givaudan, pop the capsule into the device and at the designated time, it will make you think waking is just a part of your morning dream.
During the second minute, the one pound alarm clock attracts your sense of sight with a soothing light. The third and final step plays one of 5 pleasing tunes that makes you feel like you’re waking up in a cinematic dream. And yes. There is a snooze button in case it takes you several tries to open your peepers.
Want to try it out? Look to Kickstarter online and find out how soon you can replace your wakeup method with one that will eliminate morning trauma that doesn’t include your dog barking or pulling your covers off to be fed.
Now if only you can get that latte delivered to your bedside automatically, life would be complete.Source: TBWS
