Here's the deal: If you use a public bathroom for any reason, you need to wash your hands before you leave. Don't try and debate it, don't get defensive, just do it, or else you might be publicly shamed by this DIY alarm that lets everyone know your hands are probably a cesspool of disgusting.
Imagine waking up with a bomb beside your bed. You have 10-seconds to cut one of four wires if you want to stop the countdown timer. This sounds like a nightmare, but it's not. It's just the defusable clock.
Just admit it. You suck at cooking. Therefore, that annoying little fire alarm over your head has probably saved your life a few times. So an alarm that sends out texts to emergency contacts sounds amazing right?
Ahh, alarm clocks. They are modern-day torture devices designed to interrupt a peaceful slumber. Some make it difficult like Tocky which runs away when it goes off. Others like the classic Mr. Bump help you vent your frustration at having to get up so early.
Harking back to the classic Dieter Rams design, Frog's wooden alarm clock would go perfectly with one of the flip clock apps for the iPhone. And oh, how the iPad looks in that mini-CRT...
When it comes to alarm clocks, there's definitely no shortage. But one commonality amongst almost all alarms is that they are annoying. The Acoustic Alarm, however, takes a new approach to the wake-up call.
Remember the Daylight Saving Time bug from last year where iPhone alarms were off by one hour? It's back. Hope you weren't counting on your recurring alarm to wake you up this morning. (One-time alarms are still OK).
Uh, if your iPhone alarm failed to wake you up this morning it wasn't because you got too wild last night. No, it's actually your iPhone's fault. Apparently, one time alarms just aren't working for the iPhone in this new year. Seriously. I repeat: Alarms set for one time use WILL NOT go off as planned. The current…
Hell. That's what. Made famous by this year's World Cup, the humble vuvuzela's been tricked out to become the world's most irritating burglar alarm. Seriously, you thought the vuvuzela's sound was bad coming through your TV speakers? Watch this, below.
Richard Lynch sent his laptop for repairs from California to the East coast. When it arrived there, the box was full of soda cans and sheets. After getting no answers from his local UPS shop, he came up with a plan.
Heads up, iPhone users! Last week Australians found a bug in Apple's iOS the hard way. Or maybe the soft way: They overslept as their iPhone alarms failed to go off because of a glitch triggered by daylight saving time.
I adore this concept design. It's basically an alarm clock which flings a ball at your face before going off. In order to make the noise stop, you have to find the ball and put it back where it belongs.
At first glance, the self-contained Burglar Blaster security system seems neat. It's quick to set up, covers up to 2,000 square feet, and will stop intruders with a shower of pepper spray. Nothing could go wrong with that, right?
For the longest time I barely remembered to charge my iPhone at night. The iLuv App Station changed that by being a simple no-hassle speaker/charger dock that I can drop my phone into before dozing off to some mellow tune.
An innocent copy of Microsoft Office, left lying on the pavement? You'd pick it up wouldn't you, dreaming of eBay riches. This is what happens if you pick that bloody yellow box up.
I haven't used an alarm clock in years, but sometimes I miss hammering on a giant snooze button rather than gently selecting an option on my phone. Sony's upcoming alarm clock offers that, an iPod dock, and lots more.
Phillips is hoping to make waking up a more pleasant experience with their new HF3490 Wake-up Light. The device increases intensity over 20 intervals to ease sleepers into the waking world.
