Wake Up To Fun By Blasting Your Alarm Clock Into Submission

Wake Up To Fun By Blasting Your Alarm Clock Into Submission

Smashing the snooze button is so quaint. Modify your alarm to shut off when blasted with a phaser gun.

Watch the video above to see how Kipkay modifies his alarm clock to shut off not when the snooze button is tapped but when shot with a modified game gun. You’ll need an alarm clock, a toy with sound effects to cannibalise, an old “light zapper” style game gun, and a soldering iron. Hit up the link below for step-by-step instructions.

  • not sure what the point of the phaser is if you dont have to aim. my understanding is that the science behind alternative methods of turning off an alarm is to engage the person physically or mentally in order to stop the alarm, causing them to wake faster/more effectively.

    a button in a different place doesn’t achieve this; having the phaser in bed, and more easily accessible than the alarm clock next to you, would seem to make your existing alarm even less effective…

  • has a spot for the cable to thread thgruoh, and if you look at the front without the iPhone you can see where the plug would go. So you could charge it at the same time 🙂
