The Future Is Here: The Barisieur Combination Alarm Clock and Coffee Brewer

Forget living in a Jetson-type world with spacecrafts and robots for maids, The Barisieur has arrived. It’s designed by UK-based Josh Renouf and a combination alarm clock and coffee brewer. Instead of a jolt of buzzing alarm, the Barisieur wakes the user through the subtle sound of steel balls rustling in a water boiler — the balls heat the water through induction — and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. There’s even a drawer for coffee grounds and sugar, and a vial for milk.

That’s it. There’s no good reason to get out of bed on weekends, ever.
