The next time you hit that snooze button on your alarm clock, think twice – this new invention could just slap you instead.
Simone Giertz from Sweden has invented an alarm clock attached to a rubber hand that will slap you repeatedly until you’re completely awake. Giertz’s series of demo videos have gathered more than a million views on YouTube.
In the video, Giertz says she wanted to make “an alarm clock that makes your bed a little bit less comfortable.”
So she used a prop from her Halloween costume and made some modifications to her alarm clock. And voila – she came up with her unusual invention that will force one to get out of bed.
