Palo Alto Innovation Sandman Doppler a smart way to wake up

Techstination feature for Monday, January 3, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      A smarter way to wake up in the new year.    Palo Alto Innovation is out with the Sandman Doppler..a smart alarm clock with lots of added features.   There are six full power USB charging ports…with an option for USB C on three of them.   And Alexa is built in too.  There is a large display and a companion app allows you to configure how it looks..

“You can change the color of the buttons and the screen for both day and night modes.   There’s also brightness settings and we have some advanced features like blackout mode which will turn off all of the lights until you hit a button, then it will dim up slowly and then dim down slowly so you can see the time.”

Founder and CEO Alex Tramiel..who says updates will make it even better over time.   It sells for about 200 dollars…but there was no skimping here…and it sounds great too. Head to for more.
