Oracle clock is a smart alarm clock that uses a neural network to compose a new melody every time it is set to go off. The neural network was trained on a large corpus of performances of classical and modern piano music: tunes may seem familiar, but they’ve never been played before. By exposing its user to a new composition during awakening, it attempts to "prolong the moment of unadulterated perception that precedes cognitive interpretation".
