This pillow is for those of use who find traditional alarm clocks both utterly useless and annoying. Useless because we simply turn them off. Annoying because they leave us in a half-conscious, irritated state. The Glo Pillow gently wakes sleepers by slowly increasing the intensity of light in order to simulate a natural sun-rise. Designed by Ian Walton and Eoin McNally, the Glo Pillow uses an LED interface to wake users, beginning 40 minutes before the pre-set alarm time. Theoretically, this will gently wake the user, while keeping him in sync with his Circadian Rhythms. The Glo Pillow was named one of Time’s Best Inventions of the Year in 2007. Unfortunately, the Glo Pillow is just a prototype right now.
