The Alarm Clock  – Gave up on them years ago due to using my mobile as my wake up call but over the years they have come back with a bang with lots of quirky and cool ideas and it has me now interested in them again strangely enough due to what they have now compared to what was typical in the past,this for example is no wires no mess and several functions in one place and less clutter……

Alex Lewis has contacted us about this new Kickstarter which you might find interesting.. Alex goes on to say..

“This is our first step towards building a super controller bedside station that combines all your desktop or bedside needs into one clutter removing device. We’re taking over 20 years of clock-making experience, and modernizing it with QI wireless charging (and for smartphones that don’t support it, we have adapters that can make them wireless-charge capable). The docking station we just developed also has high quality Bluetooth speakers for streaming music, receiving messages and notifications without tampering with the comfort and satisfaction of the device”

Multi task.

You can charge an additional smartphone through the  USB port at the same time! The “Place n Charge” also has capabilities for “Hands Free Calling”, which means you can answer your incoming phone calls by using the clock’s easy to use button display on the device itself. While your smartphone is connected through Bluetooth, the device can also serve as a quality speaker for your phone.

 

Features of Place n Charge

  • Wireless Charging: Charge any QI compatible device just by placing it on the alarm clock. iPhone 5 and 6, as well as Samsung Galaxy phones can be upgraded to wireless charging with a simple “coil” that fits seamlessly inside your phone or underneath your cover.
  • USB Port: charge a second device with the included USB charging port.
  • Stream Music: Builtin Bluetooth enables you to stream music directly to the alarm clock and play it through the quality speakers.
  • Alarm Clock: All the features you expect from an alarm clock, including a large, white digital display that makes it easy to read the time; snooze capability; a button layout is designed for convenience, ease of use, and accessibility; and battery backup.

How do they intend to bring this project to fruition.?

The prototype has been made already and is being improved. We have a factory which has already manufactured the prototype and is willing to launch our product. We want to get our product out there as soon as everything is worked out and well put together.
What are the steps we need to take?

Since the tooling is pretty much done all we have to do is:

1. Get FCC approval.

2. Manufacture the device.

Pledges

For backing our project, and helping us bring our product to the market, you will receive both the brand new “Place n Charge” Alarm Clock with Bluetooth Speakers by SXE and a compatible receiver for your smartphone that works either with Samsung Galaxy or iPhone 5/5c/5s/6.
