SWW, 2001

SWW is an acronym, that stands for the “Sch├Ânwetterwecker” [fair-weather-alarm].

It is a product for people who want to sleep until the sun is shining again. Only during fair weather you will be woken. You will spend the rest of your time sleeping. With the help of a built-in light sensor the current light-intensity is measured. Not before a certain brightness is reached the alarm will begin to ring. An adjustable resistor, a so-called potentiometer with a screw to turn, makes it possible to personally regulate the light-intensity, in order to make sure the alarm-clock only goes off during sunshine.
