Shock clock jolts you awake

The sadistic trend continues

WebcreationUK

The alarm-clock sadists are at it again. Someone somewhere is having a grand time thinking up ways to rudely awaken us, literally, whether it be making clocks that run away or force us to disarm fake bombs .

But this new one crosses the line into a bizarre experiment in cruelty, if you ask us. (Which no one ever does, of course.) The "Shocking Alarm Clock" does just what its name implies: When you hit the button to turn it off, it gives you a "minor electrical shock" just for kicks--and you pay $30 for the privilege of this abuse.

We hope that it's been tested for safety, but it should be noted that Newlaunches says it's "unsuitable for epilepsy patients as well as those that use pacemakers."
