The simplest alarm as a knob

What we’re looking at right here is a device that essentially amounts to a countdown sound-blaster with a user-interface that’s just about as easy to use as humanly possible. That’s what it’s all about, and it’s the details that make it just fantastic enough to be the most awesome little twist-and-snooze gadget on the block.

What you’ve got here is the “Timer Switch” – simply titled – designed by Myeong Ho Kang, made to be both lovely in its simple aesthetic state and simple to use. You twist the rim and watch the numbers appear along the area between the edge and the center button. When you see the amount of time you desire, you press the button.

Once the timer goes off, a sound and a light goes on, and you’ve only to tap the button back to its off-state to reset.
