How can we make waking up more fun?
Buzz Bunny is a cardboard phone accessory intended to make waking up fun for deaf children. In theory, this device syncs to a custom app that uses the light and vibration from the phone to wake the child. In order to switch off the alarm, the child 'feeds' Buzz Bunny the carrot on the phone screen.
In my research, I found that already-existing alarms for Deaf people usually involve some form of vibration or light, so I decided to follow these conventions in my design.
I created the cardboard form by hand using an X-ACTO knife and E-flute cardboard.
