Product designer Mark Bedol has introduced the Bedol Water Clock, which is powered by water.
Called the Squirt Alarm Bedol Water Clock, it runs on water from a semi-transparent water reservoir. This water source has proprietary metallic plates that allow ions in the water to be turned into current which powers the clock and alarm.
All a user has to do is fill the clock with water and it will never need batteries or electricity.
The Squirt is sculpted in the shape of a water drop and can even be packed in a travel bag, according to Bedol.
The suggested retail price of the Squirt is $26 and it has a non-traditional channel set up. Instead of BestBuy, FutureShop or Staples, the Squirt will be made available at Bath Beyond locations throughout Canada. The product is available in five colors: blueberry blue, kiwi green, tangerine orange, plum purple and smoke gray.
Mark Bedol has been developing alternative-type products with an eco-friendly focus for a number of years. Bedol also designed the Checkmaster, a checkbook calculator that simultaneously balances three different accounts and the Supersmart line of children’s school supplies.
