In celebration of the launch of this year's Greener Gadgets Design Competition 2009, we are taking a periodic look at some of the standout entries from last year's Greener Gadget Design Competition. Below is one of our favorites: Minute Glass.
Minute Glass is powered by the magnetic induction that occurs when it's shaken, and requires no batteries or AC current. The Minute Glass' alarm wakes you to your favorite radio station and won't shut off until you've shaken enough energy into it to last until tomorrow. With no snooze button you have no choice but to rise, listen to the music and start shakin' it.
