Here’s a first: a multi-function clock pillow that “uses an integrated fabric interface for setting the alarm.” No word yet on if this concept will go into production. Here’s how it works:

The time is displayed on the surface of the pillow using an LED grid inside the pillow. The user goes to sleep and passes through the five sleep stages to REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Forty five minutes before the alarm is due to activate, the pillow begins to glow. The light intensity increases gradually from 0 lux to 250 lux and simulates a natural sunrise. At the set time the light emitted is sufficient to wake the body naturally – a positive and calming start to the day. Using light rather than sound to wake encourages the body to establish a healthy sleep rhythm, and make the day more productive and stress free
