No-more sleep Alarm Bed

Bed that wakes you up because there's no way you could sleep on this

This is a comfy inlatable mattress that you'd use as any other. However at it's base are many irregularly shaped protruberences. When the alarm goes off in the morning the bed slowly deflates. After a couple of minutes you're left lying on what feels to be large dice, or baseballs or jacks (it doesn't really matter - uncomfortable shapes). Good for those who keep hitting the snooze. The mattress could even have two sides/alarms, for your other.

A tilting mattress. Note the category, please. [phoenix, Oct 04 2004]

       Just join a rowing team. If you sleep through your alarm, you're guaranteed to receive a phone call 30 seconds after practice begins.

       Thanks, Phoenix. Of course, you have no problem rising.

       Of course for some the hard, uncomfortable under surface may be a vast improvement over the current pillow-top surface now. *ahem*

       It should also make a huge farting noise as it deflates, like a giant whoopie cushion.

       This is brilliant!!! I want one. It is also the perfect invention for the 80% (Estimated) of western people who share a bed with their wife/husband/significant other and have to get up at different times, without waking the other person. It could come with a built in "roughness" control which changes the underbed terrain from "flat board" to "Large irregular boulders"
