Title:The Wake-Up Project
Author(s):Kopren, Danny; Wellskopf, Sam; TeRonde, Lennon
Subject(s):Consumer electronics -- Source reduction (waste management)
Sustainable design
Abstract:This "smart clock" concept features an alarm clock made almost entirely of old cell phone parts, clocks and plastic from recycled e-waste, and a web interface that tracks a user's wake-up times using software on a reused Internet router. The user can set a time for the clock to sound every morning. The website would also have information about e-waste and how the consumer could play a role in solving the e-waste problem. The project was submitted by three industrial design students from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The project won the Gold award in the Reuse category.
