Nowdays, it is very difficult for people to get up early. When the alarm clock by the bed rings every morning, they are more likely to fall into a deep sleep again after pressing down the button. Therefore, STRIKE UP series products provide a solution for this snoozing trouble. The top of the alarm clock is covered with soft spikes. Tapping the top cover will stop ringing when the user hears the alarm in his sleep. During this process, those 'spikes' will give people enough tactile stimulation to wake them up. Moreover, the aggressive sharp-thorn design and the soft touch of silicone material subvert the mild and skin- friendly sensory experience of traditional products, which add some interest to the products by strengthening the difference between the visual expression and actual tactile effect.
