Known for its seamless integration of modern technology with retro design aesthetics, German industrial design house Braun has now introduced its BC21 digital alarm clock, which doubles as a wireless charger.

Sleek and angular, the alarm clock’s design is inspired by the original DN 40, first conjured up by Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs themselves back in 1976. Accenting the generally blacked-out body are lime green details by the alarm button and on the LCD screen in the form of an alarm icon. The platform extending to the rear provides 10W Qi wireless fast-charging for your devices, certified to be both reliable and safe.

Now available, Braun’s BC21 digital alarm clock and wireless charging pad is retailing for £95 GBP (approx. $132 USD) over on the company’s website.

For more things tech-related, a supplier leak has confirmed the design for the Apple AirPods 3.
