The Final Countdown

Your Snooze Button: Now a Bomb Detonator

Ee3f02b601a00796eadff30dbdcd552aThere’s nothing more important than the first 10 seconds of your day.

It’s the tone-setter.

It’s the jump start.

It’s the precise moment when you make a (semi)conscious decision about what’s for breakfast.

Also, it’s when you’ll be stopping a bomb from detonating.

Presenting the Defusable Clock, the only alarm clock in the world that you’ll turn off by disarming it, available now for preorder.

If you’ve ever woken up in the morning/seen Die Hard 1, 2 or 3, then you probably have a pretty good idea about what to expect here.

It’s an alarm clock. Made to look like something you attach to a bunch of dynamite. On the front: a big ominous red button (that’s your snooze). Hit it, and you’ll set off a 10-second countdown. This is where the cable cutters come into the equation.

Yes, we said cable cutters.

See, on top of the detonator will be four colored wires. Cut the right one and you’ll stop the clock/buy yourself another 10 minutes of sleep. But cut the wrong one...

And to think, you were only two days away from retirement.
