Shock Plugs

Ear Plug Alarm Clock
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

If like me, the slightest noise during the night wakes you up, here is the solution. These earplugs with either a wireless connection to a clock, or an inbuilt timer would allow peaceful sleep with no disturbances for even the lightest sleeper, yet would still wake you up as they vibrate or emit a noise within the ear at the designated time. This may well be baked but I don't have the time to check today.

HB Idea: Earplug alarm clock http://www.halfbake...lug_20alarm_20clock
Pretty much the same thing. Also links to Earlarm in-ear alarm clock. (Incidentally, this showed up on a google search for "ear plug alarm".) [pottedstu, May 17 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]

Not quite baked. [pottedstu, May 17 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       I think this is pretty much the same as the earlier idea Earplug alarm clock. The in-ear alarm clock idea is also baked (see link there) but not as a device to block out sound, just for privacy.

       I got fitted for a long overdue new earmold today - it's a new type that's only been available in the last 30 days. My new earmold will soon be rubbing with the wax of the rich and famous. For example, Chick Hearn - longtime announcer for Los Angeles Lakers and I share an incoming/repaired item space which is about the size the Annotation box. I can tell you're jealous. Jealous, Jealous, Jealous I tell you. Lalalalalalala Me Lalalalalalala Ear Lalalalalala You Lalalalalala Wax....

       This reminded me of an idea that may or may not be here, I can't remember. It was for an alarm clock that used those electrodes to induce muscle spasms to wake you up.

       Reminds me of the wrist-watch alarm James Coburn used to wake from trance induced sleep in the original "Our Man Flint". It didn't "ring", per se; When worn with the face on the inside of the wrist, it just extended a small "T" stem at the appointed time that gave a small cardio-pulmonary massage to the wrist vein. Circa 1968, or one of those mod years, thereabouts.

       "Circa 1968" They had film then?
