Ridiculous new alarm clock slaps you awake

Being slapped in the face is sure to wake anyone up. Image Credit: YouTube / Simone Giertz
Inventor and robotics enthusiast Simone Giertz built the device to help her wake up in the morning.
The madcap invention, which she calls 'The Wake-Up Machine', combines a conventional alarm clock with a rubber hand which swings round and repeatedly slaps the hapless sleeper in the face.

The 25-year-old, who lives on a houseboat in Sweden, tested the invention out on herself several times and while it certainly works, it isn't exactly the gentlest way to get someone out of bed.

Suffice to say the device is unlikely to be appearing in the shops anytime soon.

Could think of nothing worse, I feel like alarm clocks of any type shouldn't exist and it would be brilliant to just get up and do **** when my body wanted to.

If positioned correctly this clock could deliver a happy ending every morning. Of course you'd go back to sleep so it needs a snooze alarm. Not impressed.

Yeah, that would only last once before I rip it off the wall. Same here! I don't like being smacked in the face, even if someone is kidding. It makes me see red.

Already have a cat that does that for me but instead of a hand I get a paw to the face.
