First ray of sunshine / The alarm clock

First ray of sunshine

There is a group of people who pursue their dreams in big cities, but they are forced by life to rent low rent basements. The environment in the basement is bad. It is dark all year round and lacks sunshine. This alarm clock is designed for them, that is, the "Beipiao group". In a dark environment, it has a small night light function. When you wake up in the morning, the alarm will ring, and at the same time simulate the sunlight on your face, so that the first ray of sunshine in the morning can wake you up. For the people living in the basement to bring a trace of comfort to the soul, although life is hard, but also in the sun shine forward.
