ALARMclock Shows How Much Money, Friends and Time You Have Left: Rude Awakening

by Lambert Varias

While most alarm clocks try to wake you up with sight, sound or a combination of both, the ALARMclock sticks to facts. Sure, it’ll bleep and blare like any other clock when you set a time, but this clock will make you want to spend time more wisely in general. How? By bumming you out.

Designed by Chicago-based Fig Company, ALARMclock connects via Wi-Fi to a mobile app, which is where you’ll enter your login credentials to your bank account or social networks. You can set it to display your 401k, savings or investment amount, as well as an “an aggregate number which represents the scope and size of your social world.” If that’s not enough to get you to move your ass, you can also make it work like the Tikker and display how many days you have left based on your “age, health, lifestyle, diet, family history and other factors.”

It’s as beautiful as it is grim. Pledge at least $85 (USD) on Kickstarter to get an ALARMclock as a reward.
