Useless alarm clock
I couldn’t resist talking about this “gadget” even if it has nothing to do with open source.
Next time I have an important customer meeting at 9am, I will set up my smart alarm clock at 7:30am. The alarm will go off at 9:30am because my lazy body wasn’t feeling like getting up at 7:30am. I don’t think the customer will be very happy to learn that I just didn’t feel like waking up early enough for our meeting. On the other hand, if you have nothing to get up for, why do you need an alarm clock?
Then I thought this is one of those useless geeky gadgets that will stay in a university lab. Absolutely not! This article affirms that a company by the name of Axon Sleep Research raised money and is planning to market this clock for $200. Good luck!
What do you think? Despite the smart science behind this thing, do you think there is big enough market for this gadget?
