An Alarm Clock with a Conscience.

An Alarm Clock with a Conscience.

What happens with all the electronics after we're done with them? Landfill. Unless you are talking about Joon & Jung Paper Alarm Clock.

Joon & Jung are a conceptual product design studio based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Their level of design initiation is simply human based, liking not only the shape of a design, but a story based on the product from everyday use. They are from South Korea, met in Design Academy Eindhoven, and have been working together as 'Joon & Jung' since 2008.

They created an innovative idea behind a product: Paper Alarm Clock. An alarm clock with an exterior case made from paper pulp; the clock comes with a self address envelope for when you feel like you've finished using it; instead of discarding the clock, you simply put it inside the envelope and mail it back to the designers, so they can re-furbish it and send it to the next owner instead of polluting the planet.

Basically, you can create this yourself with a variety of cases, boxes or more simple approaches to hold all the electronics together.

Like this Pong Clock from Ladyada & Adafruit Industries: The MonoChron: 128x64 LCD, laser cut enclosure, blinking/beeping alarm with snooze and more!

Now telling the time is not only is fun but sensitive too!
