Smart Alarm Clock

The Circa alarm clock is a Kickstarter project designed to help you wake up and fall asleep without any distractions. No more restless nights due to your smartphone. The final design is by Robert Bronwasser.

Challenge

 

Circa required help with the technical side of their alarm clock. We acted as an external development partner and coordinated the Kickstarter design, engineering, and prototype development.

Approach

 

Using our integrated development process, we quickly created prototypes. Because we solved important production issues early, the final engineering phase after funding was short.

Result

 

The Circa alarm clock uses a breathing assistant and soothing sounds to help you fall asleep. The included sleep sensor placed under your mattress helps you wake up at just the right moment.

The Circa alarm clock also has Spotify integration and digital radio. It features no cameras or microphones. We value your privacy.

Engineering & Prototyping

The functional cosmetic prototypes are used to validate the details, create the photos and movie and present the product on a design fair.

Implementation

Tooling management and production support.

 Hans Brouwer, Founder Circa Labs B.V.:
“SLIMDESIGN has been a great support for our project. Their work on the industrialization of CIRCA was very professional and efficient, and with their extensive network, we were able to reduce the tooling and production cost quite a lot.
It was a pleasure to work with them and I can recommend them highly. Especially if you are looking for a partner to make your Kickstarter idea reality.”
