Lumos / Smart Nightlight


LUMOS has a shape of hourglass. Time is flowing like sands in a hourglass, so as the light of LUMOS. The user sets the "getting up time" and turn on the light. The light of LUMOS is flowing with the time approaching the "getting up time". LUMOS has two separate parts: the upper half part can be used as a flashlight, the lower half part displays the time. Unlike the normal nightlight keeping the light for the whole night, LUMOS saves electric energy. And with a glance onLUMOS, user can roughly know how much time left before getting up.
