Bang & Olufsen Beotime

The Bang & Olufsen Beotime is an alarm clock that also doubles as a control for Bang & Olufsen systems in the home. BeoTime features a built-in sleep timer which can switch all Bang & Olufsen equipment in the room to standby after a selected time interval of up to 120 minutes which is a feature for those who like to stay up watching television or fall asleep to the sound of a favorite CD without having to worry about turning the music off. In addition to the alarm and sleep timer functions, the BeoTime can be used as a remote control for basic operation of the bedroom television, loudspeakers, or light control. BeoTime also features built-in tilt sensor, display information and button functions change orientation in accordance with how BeoTime is held, left on the nightstand, or placed in its wall bracket.

Features

Bang & Olufsen Beotime’s designer, Steffen Schmelling, was inspired Mozart's The Magic Flute which is a story in which light defeats dark, with an inherent mix between dream and fantasy. The “flute” was used by the designer as a design choice to represent such surreal disposition. The BeoTime is an anodised and polished aluminium tube, with a trumpet-shaped button that protrudes from one end when the alarm is activated. The button clicks in and out when pressed (reminiscent of a classic alarm clock) and is used to switch the alarm on and off. At the other end of the tube, a cover conceals the battery compartment for three batteries with a life of approximately one-year. Two rubber feet, one at each end of the tube, keep BeoTime steady when placed on a table surface. For wall-mounting, BeoTime rests in an almost invisible magnetic wall bracket. The device’s menu navigation is done with the main square button in the center of the unit. Three separate square displays, which feature dark text on a bright background, show the present time, alarm time, and wake-up source (alarm chime versus audio system). The current time is always visible, and because of a built-in motion sensor, the display backlight is activated by a simple touch, e.g. to check the time during the night. BeoTime is available at all Bang & Olufsen showrooms August 2009 for the MSRP price of $375.00.
