#604: Namealarm

When trying to get myself up in the morning, I find it all too easy to ignore my alarm.

Today’s invention is simply an alarm clock into which one can record a personal wake-up message (perhaps even each night). The most effective approach would probably take into account that we respond preferentially to hearing our own name, even if the volume of the speech is low.

So, I’d have eg my mother record ‘Wake up patrick’ on my behalf and this should achieve a greater level of attention than any amount of clanging bells.
