The alarm clock that will shock you awake

Getting up early in the morning is the worst, especially given the current weather.

Sometimes we wish there was a more urgent reason to get out of bed than just, you know, going to work.

This might be a step too far though. Sankalp Sinha has created the SingNShock, an alarm clock which offers an electric shock which is activated whenever you press the button to stop the alarm. Believed to trigger neurological functions, the pulse is a way of invigorating you in the early hours. Kind of.

You can also programme the clock to play a song of your choice as the alarm. So, perhaps it would be most beneficial if you picked a loathesome song, such as Gangnam Style or maybe Crazy Frog, so you're more determined to make it stop, no matter what shock you may receive.

It's just a prototype for now but you can find out more information here.
