Currently in the prototype phase, the singNshock alarm clock combines music with a slight jolt of electricity to help get you out of bed in the morning. Developed by 19-year-old automotive design student Sankalp Sinha, the futuristic mock-up of the alarm clock includes a digital touch panel on the front with icons for battery power, speaker volume, brightness level, time, music selection and an on/off switch for the shock feature. Sinha has built the speakers into the rear of the device in addition to a MMC slot for a 32GB SD memory card that stores your favorite music.
According to the project details, the level of the jolt is measured in millivolts and would likely be much milder than a typical shock from a buildup of static electricity. Sinha came up with the idea of using an electric shock to kickstart his brain in the morning after waking up late for class several times in a row.
Along the sides of the clock, Sinha wants to include LED lighting in a variety of colors which can be altered by the user. In addition, the concept designs of the singNshock alarm clock includes six different colors for the exterior body style. According to the comments located on the singNshock alarm clock information page, Sinha is currently looking into using Kickstarter to fund the development of the alarm clock. According to the Huffington Post, Sinha is also reaching out to individual investors as well as researching manufacturers in order to start production of the device. He’s also looking into distributing the alarm clock online as well as within retail stores.
