How will alarm clocks wake thee? Let us count the ways. Here’s another innovative idea that will force both your body and your mind to wake up. Designed by Oliver Sha, the IQ Alarm Clock presents users between 1 to 3 multiple choice questions that they have to answer correctly in order to shut off its alarm. If you really can’t answer the questions, you can turn the clock off – by holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Of course the alarm is still blaring while you’re pressing the power button, so either way you’ll wake up.
The clock’s battery compartment is also hard to open, so you can’t do the ol’ take out the battery trick.
Unfortunately Oliver didn’t mention any precaution against the smash the alarm clock to pieces trick.
