Silent Alarm

iF concept design award 2013

This idea was inspired by young travelers who stay in youth hostels. They often have to share their sleeping quarters with others but do not necessarily have the same sleeping schedule due to jetlag, for example. Using a regular alarm clock would likely disturb the others in the room. The Silent Alarm is a combination of ear plugs and an alarm clock. Simply connect it to your cell phone, set the time, and sleep peacefully until it wakes you up. The Silent Alarm can also be used if you want to take a nap in your office or school dormitory and it is helpful for people who have irregular sleeping patterns.

I am really grateful to my family for always supporting me, and I appreciate my teachers and friends. I am definitely lucky, and winning this honor means a lot to me. I am so happy that I did it! Thanks a lot for everything, and I will keep exerting every effort to designing.
