If you have ever set your alarm of
(accidentally) to go off after you have left
the apartment and your neighbors are
getting pissed off at you, you need
something like this.
An alarm clock with a sensor facing or
placed on the wall(s) adjacent to your
apartment. It will detect your neighbors
pounding on the wall, and can be set to a
number of consecutive pounds or any
pounding. This way, when you forget your
alarm again, and it's waking the
neighbors, you can just tell them to pound
on the wall in a certain place, a certain
number of times, and the alarm will go off
It's no excuse for not fixing your alarm
settings, but for those who's life or job
demands them at odd times of the day,
this is good, like for people with on-call
Only problem: With an alarm this smart,
why not have it detect if you are even in
bed? maybe this is a smarter idea.. but
too late, i've typed this out already. haha.
You are redunding a bit here:

||Ah...I thought this was going to be along the lines of "Excuse me, sir, I apologize for disturbing you, but you really should be thinking about getting up"...
||Either that, or "I'm sorry, I didn't ring at 8:00 because you looked so peaceful and I was afraid I might wake you."
