Ah, the proverbial double-edged sword.
It’s a good thing, yet a bad thing.
A blessing, yet a curse.
An alarm clock that gets you out of bed in a timely fashion... yet shreds your money into a million pieces if you don’t.
Behold the Money-Shredding Alarm Clock, an as-yet-unrealized wave of innovation that destroys your hard-earned Benjamins every time you hit the snooze button, hopefully available sometime during the next year.
If an alarm clock crossed paths with a paper shredder and said, “Hey, let’s get together sometime,” and then they got together sometime, you’d be left with this thing. And assuming it ever comes to fruition, we’re pretty sure it’ll make the decision of whether or not to sleep an extra nine minutes a fairly straightforward one.
Plug it in, set the alarm and carefully place your currency of choice into the slot (it can hold an entire stack of cash if you’re feeling particularly Bill Gates-y... and tired). Come morning, every time you hit the snooze button you’ll hear a very distinct grinding sound. That’s your money being pulverized.
Oh, and we should also mention that destroying money is currently considered a federal crime punishable by prison time (we assume they’re looking for a loophole), so it’s probably a good thing this isn’t available just yet.
Also because it shreds your money.
