Lately, I’ve been finding it harder and harder to get out of bed. Maybe it’s because of the cold weather or the fact that I probably have more work on my plate right now that I can handle. Or maybe it’s because my current alarm clock annoys the bajeezus out of me.
Luckily, there’s an alternative–but the catch is that you have to build it yourself. Jamie McMahon (whose coincidentally has the same last name as one of my favorite musicians, Andrew McMahon) built his very own Acoustic Alarm to wake up to peaceful and serene acoustic mornings.
There’s a toggle on one side to activate the alarm and a pair of dials to set it. Once it goes off, the built-in mechanism strums a set of guitar strings to create a harmony to wake you up. You can decide which notes the alarm will play by making a couple more tweaks here and there as well.
