Gamified alarms

When you absolutely need to wake up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve all been there. Bashing the snooze button repeatedly for an hour before dragging yourself out of bed just as tired as if you’d got up when the alarm first went off. And bonus, now you’re late! Fear not though. The people behind wakeme.ca have a solution. They plan to “socialize” the experience of waking up with a new app that lets you track your wake-up record and recruit online buddies to keep you honest. You can also make the alarm itself difficult to shut off, only going quiet once you’ve solved a mind-bending puzzle. It sounds a bit stressful, but at least you’re awake. And please, don’t try this if your partner needs some shut eye.
