There seems to be a great deal of technology invested in waking people up. Look, if they’re that hard to get up, here’s an idea: maybe you should just let the poor people sleep . No
flying gadgets or freaky
nature sounds, and sure as sugar no
Sonic Boom Alarm Clock.
It doesn’t generate a real sonic boom—thank god . Instead it’s got a little attachment that goes under your pillow and vibrates like a jackhammer when it’s time for you to get up. Which is a little bit like getting woken up by someone slamming your bedroom door as loudly as possible.
Who the hell thought this was a good idea? Okay, I can see how it might be nice to wake up feel invigorated and energized, but not because your adrenaline levels just shot through the roof . For the privilege of getting rudely awakened, you’ll pay $35.
