Who Invented The Alarm Clock? [Infographic]
They ring, they beep and they buzz…they’re alarm clocks, and most of us really hate them with a vengeance.
Love them or hate them, you have to agree that alarm clocks are valuable tools to aid us in our daily lives. They let us keep our jobs, for one thing, by avoiding being late. And the alarm clock has a truly interesting history.
Sundials were used by the ancient Egyptians as some of the earliest clocks. Plato was said to have used a water clock.
In modern times, we have radio-controlled alarm clocks and many of us use our smartphones to wake us up. But it’s very interesting to trace back the History of Alarm Clocks to see how this useful (though annoying!) tool has evolved and progressed over time.
The team at OnlineClock.net has assembled together the most significant data in the alarm clock’s history in order to create this appealing infographic. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
