Last year, British designer Josh Renouf announced plans to build the Barisieur, a combination alarm clock/coffee brewer that will wake you up, then serve you a nice hot cup of coffee, as you open your eyes and greet the new day. Here’s how Engadget described it at the time:
Using induction heating and stainless steel ball bearings, the Barisieur boils water for pour-over brew, giving off the aroma of your favorite beans as you rise to start the day. There’s even a cooled slot for a spot of milk and storage for sugar and extra grounds.
Today, we’re pleased to announce that the first orders for the Barisieur can be placed through Kickstarter. They’re looking to raise $555,000 through their Kickstarter campaign. (Watch the video above for information on that.) The first 300 backers will be able to pre-order their Barisieur at a low price ($292). Get more details here.
