The Rise Alarm Clock

Ever had one of those million dollar ideas that was going to make you rich? Well, I did, but I knew it would never happen for me. So I just sat back and wondered when it would happen. Well, according to a BBC article, someone has finally done it, at least partially.

The Rise alarm clock offers to wake you up early based on traffic conditions. If things are bad, it’ll wake you up a bit earlier. That was something I was planning for my version, but I was going to include weather into the equation. Foggy? Give you an extra 5 minutes. Icy? Better get on the road quite a bit earlier.

You can bet once these hit mainstream, I’ll be in line to get one. I figure that maybe you can even stream audio off of it from other cities since it will have Internet access. Could be quite a machine once it hits the US…
