Newfangled Alarm Clock Slaps You Silly Awake
This clock will hit you harder than you can hit any snooze button.
Simone Giertz, creator of the worst breakfast feeding machine you'll ever see, is back with another invention for the morning.
This time, it's an alarm clock that hits you when it goes off. It's pretty simple -- a rubber arm is wired to a traditional clock so that when the alarm goes off, the arm repeatedly smacks you, forcing you to get out of bed.
If you're one of those people who struggles to get out from under the comforter, then this "wake-up machine" is definitely for you.
It looks pretty effective and is probably the worst way to be forced out of bed that's not due to waking up because you have to go to the bathroom and you look over to see you're alarm is going to go off in 20 minutes, putting an end to that whole "full night's sleep" thing we are all so into achieving.
We say this alarm clock has a lot of potential, but it's missing its true purpose: putting it near somebody's else's bed while he or she's asleep, setting the stage for a classic prank and one very angry (and groggy) victim.
