The Escape Clock: When The Snooze Button Isn't Big Enough

The Escape Clock: When The Snooze Button Isn't Big Enough

A lot of us have problems getting up in the morning. A lot of us also use the snooze button, even though that it's not that good. Additional sleep that comes thanks to the snooze button is fitful at best. Even though the Philips Wake-Up looks really tempting, it's hard to justify spending $200 on an alarm clock, even though it sounds like it works well. Maybe then, something like the big button Escape Clock is something for you.

Designer Santiago Cantera came up with this idea. The big button is like an extension to the main body of the clock, so if you hit it too hard, there are no risks of breaking it. The big button also functions wirelessly, which is pretty cool.

We think that this idea is pretty neat. Most of us want to throw our alarm clocks against the wall when it sounds, bashing it on a giant button might seem therapeutic. The big button is made to look like the escape key like on a Windows compatible keyboard. One side of the button shows the time in large red numbers.

For now the Escape Clock is just a concept, but we think that enough interest has been generated for it to see the light of production. There is a market for unique-looking affordable alarm clocks and we hope that this one will get produced soon. We can't wait to hit that large button, can you?
