Niao Niao / Alarm Clock

Niao Niao
Niao Niao

Named "niao niao",which means curling upwards in Chinese, the creative alarm clock integrates the function of a bread machine and a normal alarm clock, waking people up in a cozier and more natural way by sending the smell of bread and the awaking sound simultaneously.
The aroma of the freshly-made bread, combined with some gentle music coming out from the alarm clock, tempts people to get up from their bed .Moreover,just like drawing lots, the bread pop up from the bread machine each day with a random picture on it. With each picture representing a different mood, the bread always hints a new and bright day.
