Just a few more days left to cast your vote and let your voice be heard by the folks at Quirky.com.
What would you be voting for? Antonios’s window-blind timer. What is a window-blind timer? The idea is that you can put a motor on your existing window blind so it can rise at the time you want.
What’s cool about a motorized window-blind timer?
You can sleep in darkness, and then allow yourself to gently start to wake up by having natural light shine on you in the morning before your alarm goes off.
Antonios and I looked into motorized blinds, and the current options on the market are really expensive. As usual, Antonios was determined to find a better solution. He assessed the window and came up with this idea.
What are the next steps?
Antonios sketched out his idea (see below) and submitted it to Quirky.com and if it gets 200 votes, the product team at Quirky will review the idea and consider if they want to make it. And if they decide to make it, we’ll have our timed, motorized, window-blind openers and get to wake up with the sun!!! (Well, at least we’ll get to wake up with the sun in the months that the sun is up before we are!)
Thanks for your votes!!!
