"Silence" Alarm Clock with Shake'n'Wake!

Sent my way by friend and former coworker Celeste Roschuni, designer Johan Brengesjo's concept "Silence" alarm clock has a couple of neat tricks up its sleeve. The whole silent-vibrating-ring thing isn't so new - I blogged about a similar concept back in 2007 - but it's still a great idea to use a tactile alarm that won't disturb your partner. The interesting addition here is what I'm calling "shake'n'wake" - you shake your hand to snooze, but have to shake harder each time you want to snooze more. After a while, all that effort and motion will wake you up anyway - nice!
