Sony plans to wake you with digital projector nature soother

Sony might be focusing on the Sony Dash in the US, but until that lands in the UK, Brits will have to make do with a new "Multi-feature clock radio with projector, soothing nature sounds and room thermometer" says Sony.

The new ICF-C717PJ, is, as the description above suggests, a standard clock radio with a hidden digital projector that will beam the time across your room for you to gaze at as if it were a starry consolation.

While you're gazing at the time you can set it to play nature sounds from five nature settings: undersea world, waves, mountain brook, rainfall or birdsong to suit your mood or more likely your favourite tunes via the FM/AM radio or your MP3 player, thanks to the AUX in port.

And just so you know how cold it is in the morning, there’s even a thermometer that displays ambient temperature in your bedroom.

Expect to be woken up by it from April.
