Above, is the first ever Clocky prototype. Clocky was conceived as a class project for the Industrial Design Intelligence course at MIT. Gauri created Clocky because she could never get herself out of bed on time, hitting the snooze button for up to two hours!
Clocky is a shaggy, pet-like creature. This first Clocky prototype was made from carpet, a travel clock from CVS, toy motors, and was hooked up to a circuit board, as if on life support, as you can see in the video below. You can see more images of the first Clocky prototype on flickr.
