Alarm Clock Gives Snoozers Electric Shocks

The singNschock concept design will jolt users out of bed.

This clock will literally shock you. India-based designer, Sankalp Sinha, has come up with an alarm clock that is able to send a jolt of electricity when you fail to wake up.

The singNschock clock is sleek in design and features a touchscreen. It can store up to 32 GB of music and the user can program a particular song to play when the alarm goes off. But hit the snooze button, and a small current of electric shock is issued to wake up the user.

The small electric pulse is enough to trigger neurological functions and wake up the brain. Sinha, a student at India’s Sharda University, explains that:

The shock button on the top is aluminum coated. When the user presses the button in order to stop the alarm, it conducts an electric shock pulse of a few milli volts triggering neurological functions.

Users also have the option to turn off the electric shock, for example the weekends when they want to sleep in for a bit longer. The singNshock is only a concept right now, but Sinha hopes to see the clock roll out commercially and in six different colors.
