This year’s IDEA awards features only one time related entry – A Philips Clock Radio that got a bronze in the consumer products category. According to the brief, the round device features include easy-to-hold-and-use interface that allows personalization of wake-up sounds, called the “Roll Me Over” function. The display rotates as the clock is rolled over thanks to a directional sensor.
Its interesting to note how the core watch industry generally seems to be isolated from the larger product design community, otherwise we would’ve probably seen more entries.
