Strange News – Need Extra Help Getting Out Of Bed?
If your snooze button is just making it harder and harder to get up and get going in the morning perhaps what you need is the ultimate alarm clock -- the Ramos Alarm Clock!
It was invented by 25-year-old engineer Paul Sammut who says, "I wanted to make something that would essentially force me to get out of bed." The Ramos Alarm Clock emits a loud "dinging sound" and once it goes off, you must go into the kitchen or bathroom and punch the day's date into a telephone-style keypad. Even if you unplug it, batteries take over. Paul says, "Now I wake up before it goes off. I subconsciously fear it and know I have to get up." He made a video demonstrating the clock and posted that on kickstarter.com-- where the general public can support creative ideas by investing in them financially. Paul says, "We raised over $150,000 over a month and a half and we currently have over 400 orders." That's over 400 orders at $350 a pop mind you. Yes it seems guaranteeing you get out of bed isn't cheap! Take a look at the video and tell me what you think.
