As we’ve mentioned before, your phone is a horrible alarm clock. Sure it wakes you up at a selected time (or 10), but it means your blue light-emitting phone is by your bed when you’re trying to doze off, and that means late night Instagram scrolling and browsing the new goods in the Cool Material Shop. The latter is a wise, wise move, but everything else is wrecking your sleep. That’s why we’re digging Circa. Circa is, at its most basic, an alarm clock. It looks sharp and will wake you up without your phone. But Circa is more than a simple alarm clock. It’s also a smart alarm that, with the help of a sleep sensor (select the correct model on Kickstarter), will gently wake you at the optimal time. It delivers insights on your sleep and coaches you to improve it. There’s a breathing assistant to help you catch some z’s, along with soothing sounds and white noise. It even connects with your smart home devices so you can shut off your lights without your phone. It’s easily the finest “alarm clock” we’ve ever come across.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
