The Zen Alarm Clock. Doesn’t actually do anything, just sits there contemplating why the sound of one bell ringing doesn’t make a tree fall in the forest. Or something. Oh OK, it has a ‘mindfulness bell’, which dongs just once then waits politely for a few minutes. My version is much better though, isn’t it? $139.95. Oh, and maybe you don’t need an alarm clock at all?
In addition to its use as an alarm clock, The Zen Timepiece also serves as an aesthetically-sophisticated timing device for the practice of yoga, meditation, bodywork, or any activity where beauty and tranquility are important. Upon reaching the end of the programmable countdown time, the clock strikes through the same 10 minute progression sequence as the alarm function described above. In the interval timer mode it can be set to strike its gong repeatedly at any time interval.
