Not all technology at CES is completely new. Some are very familiar - just with a small twist. Some other products offer more of a twist. Here are some of the new products new companies that want to just help you get out of bed.

Sandman Clocks

Sandman Clocks

Sandman Clocks is offering a new twist on the standard nightstand clock most of us probably currently have in our bedrooms in one form or another. The Sandman Clock's most prominent feature are the large red LCD digits displaying the time. The clock auto-adjusts the brightness of the time display so that they dim when it's darker, so as to not illuminate the room. (The brightness can also be adjusted manually.) The clock's second most prominent feature are the four USB charging ports on the rear of the case. Three of these are 1.0 amp, suitable for charging most phones or other small devices. The fourth USB port is a 2.1 amp, high power, port suitable for charging tablets or larger devices.

The clocks design also features a large snooze bar with a contoured indentation that makes it easy to find with your eyes closed. Slots molded into the case's bottom help to manage the charging cable of plugged in devices.

The Sandman Clock is currently available for pre-order for $29.00.
