If you're not a morning person and always struggle to find the will to drag yourself out of bed then this article is for you. We found this interesting alarm clock that will teach you how to stop hitting the snooze button. Snoozing for five more minutes after your alarm rang won't be an option anymore as this alarm clock will give away your real money if you do so.

How does this alarm clock differ from the others? Well, each time you strike its snooze button, the alarm system will donate some of your money to an organization you despise. In other words, it's voluntary extortion. Failing to wake up becomes an absolute liability for those who decide to take a few minutes to doze off. Does it really cure the snooze button addiction? If you don't have a stache of money to cushion your pillows then yes. If you have a few hundred bucks to spare then maybe you could afford the luxury of hitting the snooze button.

It's quite easy to calibrate. The evil alarm clock can be hooked up manually through the RJ45 jack or via Wi-Fi. There's an embedded web browser where users can configure the snooze system. From there, simply choose from the list of supported online bank institutions (with over 1,600 banks listed) then pass through the login section. Over 6,200 charities and non-profit organizations are supported by the snooze device - surely there would be a few that you think is ridiculous and doesn't deserve any funds. And that's the whole point of it. To give away your money to charities you don't like just because you can't resist hitting the snooze button. The minimum amount you can donate is $10 so it is quite a stingy price to pay. You can check the list of people with matching contradicting charities from ThinkGeek. They promise to cure people's snooze button addiction. If you're a real morning zombie then this is probably something you'd want to invest on. It's only $39.99 - not a steep price to pay for curing your morning snooze issues.
