Mudita seems to be getting into all sorts of minimalist hardware design. First came their phone (which we wrote about here), and then more recently their automatic wrist watch (covered here). Well, now they want to help you go to sleep and wake up with the Mudita Bell and Mudita Harmony.

The Mudita Bell is following the look of a classic analog alarm clock, with a three-hander design (one presumably indicating the wakeup time) and a large button on top for setting the clock. Powered by a 2600 mAh battery, the Bell has a warm-hue backlight (that can also work to gently wake you up) and a selection of 10 different alert tones. This is their simpler offering, and comes in at $49.

If you want something a bit more technologically complex, then the Mudita Harmony ($99) is where you want to look. This one gets rid of the classic analog looks, and instead has an e-ink display for the face of the clock. This also means it’s not a traditional clock movement inside; it instead relies on the MuditaOS to get things rolling. Along with waking you up, it can chime to remind you to go to bed, help with your meditation timing, and even help you get in a quick power nap.

Both of these alarm clocks are in the final stages of their development, and should be getting onto the production line in November, with shipments expected for December – so just in time to wake you up out of those dark winter nights. To get your own order in, just head on over to the page for the Mudita Bell or the Mudita Harmony. Or, you know, just head over to mudita.com
