iPhone robot is an alarm clock with attitude
For the snooze kings and queens of the world, an even more annoying alarm clock is a must. Well, here’s a droid with a “hilarious personality” that looks like it needs a good kick.
Tim-e is an iPhone dock with arms and legs. It wriggles and dances and is generally annoying. But that’s the whole point.
The subject of a Kickstarter campaign that’s aiming for $150,000, Tim-e (pronounced “Timmy”) uses your iPhone screen as an animated face.
In the promo video below, it has a blue, animated mug and puts on a snarky routine. It recalls the genie from Disney’s “Aladdin.”
