We have pretty much stopped using traditional alarm clocks, as we have started relying on our smartphones for this feature. Another reason is the fact that alarm clocks are pretty dumb, and in this quickly evolving world of smart things, we tend to opt for the more efficient option.
Luckily, for those of you who are always hunting for smart gadgets, somebody has thought of BEDDI, a device described as an “app-enabled alarm clock/speaker includes Spotify, Uber integration, smart home controls, traffic/weather reports, charging and more.” Yeah, it does seem that this alarm clock is pretty smart and that it can do a range of things. Beddi has over 20 features, so this makes it very useful. Here’s what it can do:
- Spotify wakes you up to your music
- Multiple USB charging ports
- Morning traffic commute time update
- 3 smart buttons to control your smart home
- One touch Uber calling
- Wake up light
- White noise generator/soothing sound
- 16 million color mood light
- Built-in FM radio
As we can see, Beddi can do a lot of things, such as letting you charge your smartphone, ordering a Uber car, listen to radio and, of course, wake you up but in a soothing manner. Beddi comes with Google Maps integration, periodically updating you via voice to let you know exactly when you need to leave to arrive to work on time. It also allows you to choose your favorite Spotify playlist for your morning alarm.
Furthermore, it also possible to stream Bluetooth music from your phone, or other online music players such as Apple Music, Google Music, etc. If you have smart home appliances, it’s great to know that Beddi will automatically adjust your smart appliances according to your wake time.
The device comes with 3 programmable smart buttons with 3 modes – Single Click / Double Click / Long Press. The Beddi smart buttons also allow you to perform such actions as bookmark your Spotify music and play a specific track, send SMS, make a phone or Skype call and act as phone finder, as well.
The Beddi dashboard also displays a weather forecast, which is another useful feature before you’re preparing to go out. The device comes with free apps for iOS and Android users. You can get one Beddi for $75, which is $25 of the retail price. The company has managed to get more than $52,000, which is twice the initial goal of 25,000.
