I know about alarm clocks that also make relaxing sounds to help you get to sleep.
So far so good but I cant leave well alone can I?
How about adding a motion-sensor to the alarm clock?
So when you set the alarm in the usual way you also select [a} the sleep-inducing sound
or sounds you want, and [b] the wake-up sound you want.
So-o-o what happens?
Well, if you lie completely still,
the sound of a babbling brook or whatever will gradually fade to silence, but will gradually get louder to normal level if you get restless, ditto repeato.
When you move about in your sleep, a time over-ride circuit will have cut in to keep the sound-response at a low level.
If you wake up however, you can re-set the over-ride to try again mode.
