The Silent Alarm Clock

I don’t think there’s anything as annoying as being jolted awake by a high-pitch electronic sound in the morning. Here is an alternate solution that ought to be more pleasant on the ears:

“Silence” is a conceptual alarm clock that will wake you up without emitting any sound. Each person who wishes to get woken by it has to wear a special wireless rubber ring. When the designated wake-up time comes, the clock will send a signal to the ring, which in turn will generate a tactile alarm. The sleeper can then shake his hand to activate the snooze function if he wishes to sleep a bit longer. However, further snoozes will be harder to generate, requiring more vigorous shaking each time.

  1. Wow, now that is the best idea for an alarm clock I've ever heard of. In the mess of my room something like Clocky would roll 3 inches and get hung up on the mountains of stuff.

    In fact, this could be an interesting DIY project.
