When they opened up the suitcase that contained the “Dream Sharing Device” in Inception, the upper section reminded me of a clock face, so I threw this alarm clock design together.
It has a compact clamshell case based on the suitcase, typical of many travel alarm clocks. It could beep or buzz people awake, perhaps even play the kick song as well.
I felt a travel version was more ideal due to the suitcase layout, also because they go after targets traveling on trains and planes in the film. I don’t believe this would be handy as a regular bedside alarm clock.
I’m surprised that there are hundreds of travel alarm clocks still available for sale, I figured they went extinct because of smartphones.
