Are you lazy to get up early from sleep? And this affects you going to your college or office on time? And you hate your habit of getting late in the morning? Then what might be the solution for it? Alarm clock comes into our rescue,naturally. But this solution cannot rectify the problem for so many people.Why?
“God made lazy bums. Man invented the snooze to make them even lazier. And am not sure who invented the concept of “Office” to make the lazier ones repent for their laziness.” These are not my words. Somu, a vivid blogger,in his previous post Snooze alarm describes how he suffers with this problem in a very interesting way..
And there is a good news for the people who sincerly want to get rid of this habit. Here it is:
Gauri Nanda of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT), invented an alarm clock that runs away and hides!!! It is designed to overcome abuse of the snooze feature on most alarm clocks, Clocky falls to the floor and rolls away on the first push of the snooze button. To turn it off, a person must get out of bed and find it. Interesting? Read more on Slashdot or the MIT website. And Gauri was recently awarded the Ig Nobel prize in Economics for this invention. In the MIT site, you can have the mail id, phone number and address if wanna proceed further!!
And I e-mailed Gauri, congratulating her. She was so nice, replied immediately and thanked for my interest. She said in the mail that Clocky was about to be put into production and would be on the market early next year. A certain amount of pre-release Clockies may be available to list subscribers, sign for which can be found here: http://www.clocky.net
Subscribers will also have a chance at a Clocky giveaway.
Well,I too have this kind of problem.But I’m less worried about this all. Because my son,Aarush is a natural alarm for me!! He gets up early at 6am and makes me get up to play with him.
