Here is a modern take on the traditional alarm clock - The Homtime C1pro has got the look and feel of a digital alarm clock but is for so much more than waking up. Not only does it display time and temperature, but you can also use it to charge your USB devices or pair it with Bluetooth® electronics to project audio through its built-in speakers. It’s a 4-in-1 device designed for personalization. A brightness adjustment setting allows you to minimize glow at night, and a convenient microSD card slot allows you to set alarms with your favorite tunes.
Whats also interesting is that this product was developed with the help of a Kickstarter project - it raised $56,000 to get it started and into production - see https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/517227712/homtime-c1pro-your-all-in-one-bedside-gadget/description
