#1745: SleepSlope

There is a serious shock to the system of many people twice a year when the clocks are moved forward or back.

Today’s invention is an electronic clock which offers an alternative to the normal step change.

The indicated time would be gradually advanced or retarded, according to a sigmoid curve, over the course of a long weekend.

This would allow those of us who are super-sensitive to the amount of sleep we get some extra time to adjust.

It would also mean that the greatest amount by which we’d be out of step would be 30 mins -at a time when punctuality is less vital than during the working week.
