Kickstarter iPhone Dock Brings Back the Giant Snooze Button
Just in time for back-to-school... an alarm accessory.
If there's one thing all of us have in common, it's that we love our precious sleep. We love it so much that it can be quite frustrating hearing an alarm go off in the morning. Luckily for us, Distil Union's Snooze iPhone Alarm Dock lets us take all of our frustration out on a gigantic snooze button. As simple as this dock may be, there's just something about slapping that SNOOZE button in the morning that is incredibly satisfying.
Without any gadgetry going on on the inside, the Snooze Dock makes the iPhone do all of the work. After sliding an iPhone into the dock, the giant snooze button lines up with the iPhone's volume controls, the default method for snoozing an alarm. Compatible with the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5, the Snooze Dock initially appeared as a Kickstarter project launched in June.
Donators who contributed $40 received a wooden finish with a custom woven red charging cable while others who donated $80 received one with an aluminum finish. The project surpassed its $50,000 funding goal earlier in July and was officially funded on July 26th. This means you won't be able to pre-order one from Kickstarter, but the makers say a webstore will be launching very soon.
Head on over to the Distil Union webpage for updates and to look out for the upcoming webstore.
