This is an alarm clock machine that steals your duvet.
This invention is not nice. It does not make the world a better place nor make life more comfortable. It will not make you happy. When you are your most vulnerable it will thrust you shivering and naked into an unfair world, and get you the hell out of bed!
For some people the noise of alarm clocks is simply not motivation enough to wrench them from the dream world and face reality. They require an incentive that is rather more aggressive and physical. I am one of these people, and this is my solution to the problem of waking up.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
