ALARMclock will scare you out of bed with reality


What motivates you to get up and go to work every morning? Forcing yourself to do the same thing over and over again can be a little maddening, so why do it? Is it the rare occasion that you actually enjoy your job, or that you need the financial stability? Whatever your reason may be, there’s a good chance you have an alarm clock that tries to wake you with blaring sound or light. If that isn’t enough to give you a start, then what will?

The ALARMclock by Fig will certainly get you moving, as it brings in the early morning with cold hard facts. Some of our biggest fears as human beings are how much money we make, our level of importance, and finding meaning in our lives. If you can’t seem to muster the internal willpower to force yourself out of your comfy bed, the ALARMclock will let you know how pertinent it is that you get up and get out there.

This clock will let you know how much money is in your bank account, how many friends you have on your social networks, and your projected life expectancy. Talk about a serious killjoy. This is a bit too real for my tastes, but maybe it’s comforting to know exactly where you stand in life. It has a bright 2-bit LED screen, and a wooden enclosure. One of these will cost you $85 if you’re up to awakening to potentially depressing news every day.

Available for crowdfunding on Kickstarter
