Those of you who have been following this site know that we really like alarm clocks that torture you in the morning. Those types of clocks are more effective in general. But if you need a gentler approach, you may want to check out Baboomi. This alarm clock focuses on waking you up comfortably. Instead of buzzing until you turn it off, Baboomi goes under your pillow and uses vibrations to wake you up. The alarm feature is customizable. You can change strength, pattern, and frequency.
The Baboomi app for Android and iOS will be downloadable for free. The clock itself is thin and does not disturb you as you sleep. This could prove useful if you have to get up early in the morning but don’t want to wake up your significant other. You can support the project on Kickstarter.
