This alarm clock has several flexible styluses which can be put on the tips of the wicks of candles. When the time to awaken comes around the styluses (stylii?) heat up to ignition temperature one at a time in conjunction with a very slowly raised volume of a beautiful classical piece. After a certain amount of time without response from the user other less delicate alarms can be sounded.

       I'm currently using a light timer for my alarm. I'm sure if you made the ignition system it'd be an easy switch-over.

       I like the idea but wonder if it wouldn't be a bit too adaptable to making IED's.   

       We like the idea and wonder if it wouldn't be nicely adaptable to triggering IED's.

       Or..... we flip that statement around! Could we use IED triggering devices as a candle alarm instead?
