As one who hates waking up early, it doesn’t get much better than this. The Barisieur is an alarm clock that wakes you up with a full, bespoke cup of coffee or tea. Yes, you read that right. It wakes you up with a cup of coffee!! It was created by Joshua Renouf, Product Design Graduate from Nottingham Trent University, for his final project.
When making a cup of coffee, The Barisieur subtly awakes the user through the stainless steel ball bearings that boil water through induction heating, resulting in the heavenly smell of a fresh cup o’ joe.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
