XtremeMac Luna // A revolutionary alarm clock that used a 128 x 64 pixel display to show a menu driven operating system. I based the design of this alarm clock off of furniture so that it would look amazing on a night stand. I wanted the unit to only have four buttons, so that's why the display ended up doing all the heavy lifting. The CMF is Black and White, because the iPods that year were available in black and White, so we instantly matched either device. I did the industrial design and user interface design, Darren Hoffman was creative director on this project. This product was sold in Apple retail stores and Wal-Mart. Created in 2006
