Vision

Alarms can be jarring and very interruptive (obviously), but ultimately unsuccessful at getting users out of bed — a la snooze button. Level Up is an alarm that aims at mitigating some of the interruptive nature through elegant sound design, but, ultimately, getting users "up." 

CHALLENGES

Devising a mechanism that prompts alertness but doesn't create too much cognitive overload was key. Using accelerometer technology, the leveling function is a way to gently "force" users to sit up right, leveling the horizon bar, to silence their alarm and begin their day.
