The Aurora Touch, by gadgeteers Mayhem, is the coolest, most colourful alarm clock we've encountered. It's a versatile and tactile gadget that's gorgeous to look at and great value for money.
With 3 light modes, it's ideal for all occasions: In 'touch' mode the light stays off to conserve power until the Aurora is tapped. It then lights for a few seconds, illuminating the time and corresponding colour. In 'night light' mode it glows continuously and automatically changes colour every hour, on the hour. In 'demo' mode the Aurora shows off with a captivating colour-phasing LED light show.
Though the Aurora is undoubtedly funky, it's also a highly functional clock: Time and date functions display clearly on its large back-lit digital LDC display, and its alarm - a double whammy of sound and colourful flashing - will make sure you wake when you need to.
The Aurora Touch comes smartly boxed, making it a great gift. It's a supercool yet reliable clock for the bedside or the desktop, a fun nite lite for kids, an excellent travel alarm clock, and a stylish and innovative gadget for guys and girls of all ages.
Please note: Unlike early versions of the Aurora clock, this Aurora Touch is designed to run on 4 x AAA batteries (available below). It doesn't require a mains adaptor and is not supplied with one, although a standard 9V mains adapter can be used if purchased separately, and without this you will not be able to put the clock into 'night mode'.
