It’s been going through the news for a while now, so much so that by now I want one too: An AxBo, an alarm clock which senses the sleep phase you’re in and knows when you’re ready to wake up. No more grogginess, no more wanting to stay in bed but still feeling all beat up after ten hours of sleep.

I think I’ll preorder now.

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with these people. They may be Austrian, but come on: do I seem like that sort of patriot who blindly endorses everything developed by Austrians? Exactly!

Update: Maybe I should have checked the price tag before exclaiming my willingness to preorder. Well, I should have expected a novelty like that to be a bit pricier than your run-of-the-mill alarm clock.
