Can’t wake up? Get a money-shredding alarm clock




Some mornings, sheer willpower just isn’t enough to counter the urge to get back to sleep. For those days, Seattle-based inventor Rich Olson has a solution: an alarm clock that shreds money if you fail to get up. In this case, time truly is money.

This video demonstrates the clock shredding a one dollar bill, though heavy sleepers might have to up their game by using five or ten dollar bills. While Olson doesn’t plan on cashing in (pun intended) on his invention, fans can try to make their own by following the instructions on his blog.
