This is Youtuber/professional maker/robotics enthusiast Simone Giertz demonstrating her latest invention — an alarm clock that wakes you up by repeatedly slapping you in the face. As effective as waking up with a series of slaps to the face might be, it’s definitely not a good way to start the day. The only time something like this should come in handy (!!!) is when you HAVE GOT TO be up to catch a 5 AM flight or something. And even then, just sleep with the lights on and set a thousand alarms like a normal person!
