Alice Wang Alarm Clock Prank Calls Your Contacts if You Don't Wake Up

Tyrant Clock: Your Friends Will Hate You If You Hit Snooze

Although it would be totally satisfying to shoot your alarm clock with a laser gun to get it to turn off (like the one I featured a while back), I don't think it will actually get me out of bed. What will? Angry, angry friends, relatives and co-workers.

This Tyrant Clock from Alice Wang (still in a concept stage from the looks of it) isn't just an alarm clock that threatens you with another beep in nine minutes. No, this clock is smart — it will sync up with your phone and call a random person from your contact list every three minutes after your scheduled wake-up time has passed, ensuring a large number of angry emails and nasty voicemails if you don't get the heck outta bed. What's worse — getting up at the first sound of an alarm, or having your boss call you into his office and asking about why you prank called his house this morning? You be the judge.

I never understand how people have a hard time waking up in the morning. It's so easy for me :) That said, this is still a horrible yet awesome idea!

Oh my gosh. This is a horrible (yet oh so smart) idea. Diabolical.
