Bonjour

I don’t know if any of the Iron Man movies show Tony Stark waking up in the morning, but if they did his alarm clock might be similar to Bonjour. It’s billed as “the world’s smartest alarm clock,” and it’s designed to serve as an artificially intelligent digital assistant in addition to its traditional morning alarm duties.

Bonjour is voice-controlled and the more you interact with it (or should that say “her”?), the more it/she learns about your daily routine. It can offer suggestions about whether the particular morning in question is a good one to sleep in, and incorporates your own habits and patterns of behavior into its smart wake-up protocols. Cool! Also kind of creepy.

You can see Bonjour in action in the promotional video below. And if it looks like the kind of thing to make your mornings a little bit less terrible, you can pre-order yours at the product’s Kickstarter listing right here.

Here’s the video:
