Cambridge, Massachusetts – (October 20, 2009) – Ambient Devices today announced the Flurry Alarm Clock.  Designed to extend Ambient’s line of products that deliver “information at a glance” to the bedside, Flurry delivers breakthrough features that will change the way people think about alarm clocks.

Flurry’s large, dimmable display is easy to read from the bedside or across the room.  The amber display is designed for low-light readability, and dedicated dual alarm controls and indicators are easy to see and simple to use. The unique “pop-up” buttons clearly show alarm status.  All information is presented on the front panel and all controls are easily in reach on the top panel.

“Ambient believes that technology products should work for you – not the other way around,” said Mark Prince, Ambient’s VP Sales & Marketing.  “The Flurry is designed to eliminate complexity from the nightstand, so everyone can enjoy a better night’s rest.”

Flurry uniquely provides weather forecast data for over 150 U.S. locations from AccuWeather.com.  No PC, WIFI, or internet connection is needed – simply plug in Flurry and automatically receive 2-day forecasts and accurate network time from Ambient’s free InfoCasttm wireless network.  Forecast information includes daily high/low temperatures and a detailed description of weather conditions, at a glance. You’ll never wait to the top of the hour for a weather report again.
