A real traditional Zen alarm clock is generally made out of wood. Because electrical devices can produce an electromagnetic field, a Zen Alarm Clock uses a battery instead for power.

You would be surprised how loud these tibetian chimes can really sound in a room. Because it is a progressive sound, the sound of the chimes is not intrusive from the start. They work to slowly wake you, but the zen digital alarm clock works by increasing in frequency over the course of a 10 minute period or until you turn it off. You will wake up from them and you will feel more rested because your mind was slowly pulled out of sleep.

      This is a very good idea. I have never heard of alarm clocks which use Tibetan Bells. However, I do know of bells which slowly light up from dark until they are a bright light, and at the same time the music increases in volume. I also believe they are cheaper than the Zen alarm clocks mentioned above.
