Attending lectures at 7.30 a.m. is still a challenge for me. Despite setting multiple alarms, I end up pressing the snooze every 5 minutes that gradually changes to an hour or more. Alarm clock applications on my Laptop with a 2.1 speakers also could not wake me up. This is quite common among most of my friends and students. But today, Sankalp Sinha, a 19 year old engineering student, came up with the singNshock – alarm clock + music player + optional electric shock pulse.
The singNshock alarm clock features a music player with high quality speakers to make your morning pleasant. You can store up to 32GB of music. The music, alarm options, etc can be accessed by the touch interface on the front. The distinguishing feature of this alarm clock is the optional electric shock pulse. The alarm clock has an aluminium coated button. If the user presses the button in order to stop the alarm, it sends in few milli volts of electric pulse sufficient to trigger the neurological functions without causing any harm. It might sound rude, but that’s what I need. What about you?
“The shock it administers is harmless but is enough to energise you!”
The singNshock is just a concept design, featuring six colors and LED lighting for better effects at night. Currently Sinha is in negotiations with many manufacturers for mass production. The expected price would be approx. 95$ per unit once it is manufactured.
I would definitely love to own one. What about you? Do you think it’s too rude? Let us know via your comments.
