Currently in the prototype phase, the singNshock alarm clock combines music with a slight jolt of electricity to help get you out of bed in the morning. Developed by 19-year-old automotive design student Sankalp Sinha, the futuristic mock-up of the alarm clock includes a digital touch panel on the front with icons for battery power, speaker volume, brightness level, time, music selection and an on/off switch for the shock feature. Sinha has built the speakers into the rear of the device in addition to a MMC slot for a 32GB SD memory card that stores your favorite music.
Regarding the shock feature, the large aluminum coated button at the top of the clock is designed to turn off the alarm each morning as well as deliver a mild electrical shock when active.
According to the project details, the level of the jolt is measured in millivolts and would likely be much milder than a typical shock from a buildup of static electricity. Sinha came up with the idea of using an electric shock to kickstart his brain in the morning after waking up late for class several times in a row.
