Melted Clock / Radio alarm clock

Melted Clock
Melted Clock

Melted clock is a radio alarm clock, integrated in the bed sheet. It allows a haptical experience of time without the need of light.
Placed on the top side of the bed sheet, you find the clock and three embroidered icons. These icons describe the function of the operating elements on the outside edge of the bed sheet. Here you can set the alarm clock, the sound level and the radio frequency. The clock segments are hidden underneath the fabric. They consist of silicone and get lifted by a slat of eps (electroactive polymer). The main electrical equipment is fixed in small pockets at the Footside of the bed.
