Waking up in summer is a lot easier than waking up in winter. The main reason being that the sun rises earlier in summer and later in winter. This is fine if you’re living like our ancestors using the sun as our evolutionary alarm clock, but you’ve got to be in the office early for that big breakfast meeting and it’s still dark when your alarm goes off…
The Philips Wake-Up Light is your personal sunrise, clinically proven to naturally wake you up so you can get out of bed easier, feeling happier and more energised.
The coloured sunrise simulation matches the warm red glows of an early sunrise and gradually brightens up through orange to a bright yellow light. If you find yourself still needing a nudge to get you up, The Philips Wake-Up Light comes with 5 natural alarm clock sounds from rainforest to seaside. It also has an FM radio and an auto-dimming digital clock.
It’s not just ideal for waking you up though, with Sleep Mode it’s perfect for bedtime too. Reversing the process from light to dark. You set the duration, relax in bed, and enjoy a sleep-inducing sunset.
Remembering what you’ve been working on and for how long is always a gruelling task, which is why there’s a ton of apps that help track your time. Few do it well, others only exist in pixels. That’s where ZEI comes in, making it easy to instantly switch between your time-tracked tasks with a physical 8-sided device that sits unobtrusively on your desk. Using the polygon shaped device is simple. Mark each side with your tasks using pen or stickers and whatever task is on top will be the task that it’s currently tracking. Connect it all up to their app (which works on macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Android), flip it, sit back do work, and watch your time track itself.
Swiss made, tough aluminium casing, fluorescent orange. Caran d’Ache make some of the best pens going and their 849 range is no exception, with their show stopping colours and meticulously engineered cartridges. There’s good, and then there’s “can-we-put-their-awesome-cartridge-in-our-£20k-pen” good.
