Software studio Tiny Hearts has developed a gesture-based iPhone alarm clock app that forces sleepers to move in order to turn off the alarm.

The Wake Alarm app has three settings–slap, flip, and shake. Slapping the iPhone or merely placing a hand over the phone puts the alarm on snooze. Flipping the phone over turns the alarm off. For those who need more ‘encouragement’ waking up, the app forces the user to shake the phone until the alarm turns off.
