Wiring the bed with pressure sensors is too complicated. Perhaps just a
sensor under one foot? And then with a waterbed, how?
Do we want to need HDMI cables to connect the bed to the clock?
Simpler would be a photo sensor in the clock to dim the display.
Or how about a knob? Like a volume control? Like on the GE clock radio
I bought at Woolco in 1977?
Very simple. And it still works.
Do you smell something burning or is it me?
