Most alarm clocks make a pretty nasty sound to wake you from your slumber. Designer Jamie McMahon decided to fix that problem by building this acoustic alarm clock, that wakes you with a tune played on a real live instrument.
The Acoustic Alarm is kind of like a mashup of an alarm clock and a ukelele, where instead of an annoying bell or a buzzer, when it's time to wake the clock will start plucking the strings. To change the tune, you simply adjust the tuning of the strings.
I wonder if you can tune it to play James Brown's "Get Up Off Of That Thing?"
Currently the Acoustic Alarm is only a concept, but I can see a real market for something like this.
