The iPhone Toaster (that’s also an alarm clock)


Under normal circumstances, I would recommend keeping your iPhone far away from devices like toasters, microwaves and food such as sliced bread for that matter. Until I saw The Day Maker, a bedside phone charger alarm hub that wakes you up by slowly pushing your phone up like a piece of toast. If you’re not quite ready to get out of bed, simply hit snooze by pushing your phone back into its tray.

While it’s currently only a concept design, it’s available for partnership or purchase and has a listing on Kickstarter pending.
