This is NOT something I plan on getting anytime soon, as a 19-year-old student has invented an alarm clock that electrocutes you when you attempt to hit the snooze button.
Sankalp Sinha came up with the idea after developing the bad habit of hitting the snooze button on his alarm clock and then going back to sleep.
To keep himself from doing this, he invented an alarm clock that sends a small electric shock whenever one touches the snooze button.
The alarm clock sends a harmless shock that is a fraction of a volt compared to the 50,000 volts administered by a standard police Taser gun.
The “Good Morning Sing N Shock” alarm clock will go into production soon.
“The idea came to me back a couple of years ago. was waking up very late and just couldn’t snap out of it,” said Sankalp, a student at Sharda University in Uttar Pradesh, India.
“In the morning my phone alarm would go off and I would just hit the snooze button.
“I would go back to sleep and just carry on hitting the snooze button in a confused and dazed state.
“It meant I kept being late for things, which was very frustrating.
“In the end I realized the only thing that would really wake me up would be an electric shock and that is how I cam up with my alarm clock.
“The shock it administers is harmless but is enough to energize you!
“I think it will help a lot of people who have the same problem as I do.”
Sankalp is currently in negotiations with several manufacturers about taking the alarm clock into mass production.
