The 夜間night* charging dock (the Chinese symbols translate to "from dusk to dawn") may appear to be simply an unassuming opportunity to stylishly charge your iPhone, but designer Douglas Wood created the dock with a very specific message: trying to discourage phone use in bed so owners get a better night's sleep.
After the iPhone is placed inside the modern contraption, the hidden connector charges your phone, but it also notifies the dock when email or text message notifications arrive. With no new notifications, the dock has a warm, gentle glow to lull you to sleep, but when an iPhone notification appears, the dock flashes like crazy, upsetting your sweet slumber! Once it's finished throwing a tantrum, you have the opportunity to respond to the message, shut your phone off, or put it in airplane mode, the latter two of which Douglas Wood hopes you'll start doing. And he's not trying to hide it. Interested in how this thing works? Keep reading to check out a video demo of the 夜間night* charging dock.

Budding game designers, have I got a documentary for you! A geeky sweetheart of Sundance and SXSW, Indie Game follows the successes and struggles of the committed — sometimes obsessive — game designers behind Fez, Super Meat Boy, and Braid. The film gives insight into the creative processes the designers go through in an attempt to fight the corporate system and make their own way in the gaming industry.
If you're not a hardcore gamer, fear not. The underdog story is guaranteed to tug at our heartstrings. And lucky for us, the dynamic Canadian duo behind the film, James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot, will also be making the full film available on a ton of different outlets like iTunes, Direct Download, and Steam. Catch a glimpse of Indie Game before its June 12 debut in the trailer below.
