Wake Up Light For Mac Simulates A Sunrise

OS X: If you've wanted to start using sleep technology to help you get a better night's rest but have been deterred by the cost, you'll want to give Wake Up Light a look. It's a standard alarm, but instead of waking you up with sound it simulates a sunrise on your computer screen.

To see an expedited demo, watch the video up top.

If you're concerned about relying solely on light to wake you up, you can set a sound as well. Five different sounds are built in, including a standard beeping noise to more soothing options like the ocean. You can't wake up to your own music (or whatever else you might choose), but hopefully we'll see that feature added in the future. For now, Wake Up Light is still a solid alternative to much pricier hardware that can do the same thing.

    So all I need to do is place my 27" iMac next to my bed. My wife will love that...

    Wouldn't this make more sense as an iPad app?
