New morning call wakes you up with your bank balance, life expectancy and number of social connections.

The ALARMclock is like having a personal assistant who only reports terrifying statistics about your life. Instead of starting your day with a loud, cacophonous buzz, you can now open your eyes to  the number of Facebook friends you have, your projected life expectancy, and your financial status – even more charming, right?

ALARMclock, which is currently seeking backing on Kickstarter, wants to help you start each day unencumbered by wishful thinking, and know your true potential (or lack thereof, depending on how you look at it).
