WiFi Donation Alarm Clock by ThinkGeek

Brilliant or Baffling: Donation Alarm Clock

Is the snooze button the first thing you touch every morning? The SnūzNLūz ($40) was developed with your sleepy kind in mind — the clock connects to your online bank account via WiFi and donates your money ($10 or more) to a non-profit you hate each time you choose to snooze.

The creator, ThinkGeek, lists the following usage suggestions:

  • Are you a butcher? Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to PETA.
  • Enjoy your freedom? (Blue state version) Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to the GOP.
  • Enjoy your freedom? (Red state version) Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to MoveOn.Org.
  • Are you a hippie? Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to the American Coal Foundation.

What do you think of this economic incentive to steer clear of your snooze button?

This is so weird! It seems like it's giving a negative connotation to donating money, since hitting snooze is something you supposedly don't want to do.

I thought it was going to say every time you hit snooze it donated some of your money :ROTFL: That would get your azz out of bed fast :ROTFL:

I think that it would be a good idea if you have a serious problem getting up in the morning. It could save you your job if you think about it. But Clocky would probably be a better option because they you have to physically get up and CHASE the thing down.

If i'm going to be giving away money i'll give it away to a company i like. of course it will deter u from pushing snooze if u lose money everytime u hit it, however, surely there are better solutions.

i think it would be a good idea for me only if it was donating to a charity i supported though. i am definitely a serial snoozer (at least ten times each morning!)

HOLY FREAKING COW WHERE CAN I BUY THE WONDER OF WONDERS! I would always get up first buzz - unless of course I could rig it to actually give to a charity I liked like the Michael J Fox Foundation or Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation or MS Society or National Brain Tumor Foundation - then I would probably just keep hitting snooze. But if it forced me to support the KKK or Aryan Brotherhood then Smashy, Smashy alarm clock. Also spend my account into overdraft and I'll destroy the entire factory that makes said alarm clock.

now the question is, if this is a real product, then what happens if your account reaches 0.00, would it still donate 10.00 in your name, or would it stop?? and there is just a little flaw. like i said, if this was real, you would be able to put in what ever charity you wanted in there.

I never snooze in the morning, I have to get up and walk across the room to turn off my alarm clock---after the chore, I'm up. I wonder how many people would hit the buttom more than twice.

Haha, I just found ThinkGeek's "USB fondue pot" when yum-marking yesterday, and at first I thought it was for real too! They have some great real products, in addition to their jokes.
