Bright idea, or just more fluff?

Glo Pillow alarm clock concept design wins award

Ian Walton, a student at the National College of Art & Design in Ireland, has won a Royal Society of Art Design Directions 2006 Designers Award for his idea of a glowing pillow.

The Glo Pillow alarm clock gently wakes people over a 40-minute period by slowly lighting up. It works the same way as the many lamps and alarm clocks that gradually bring you out of sleep before fully waking you with an alarming sound.

As Walton points out in his portfolio, this method of waking is healthier, because it works to restart your Circadian rhythm, rather than jolting you awake.
