Modified Trucker Alarm for Your 'Puter

They make devices for truck drivers that sound an alarm whenever their neck is no longer being told to hold their cranium upright.

These devices should:

A. Be more readily available to the public. This could probably prevent a lot of nasty car wrecks.

B. Be hacked so that they are wired into software on your computer that will tell you to go to bed instead of nodding off in front of the computer with questionable browser windows open for your girlorboyfriend to discover.

Surely a noisy screen saver would be just as effective?

I just broke up with my girlorboyfriend. [+]

You couldn't tell? No wonder you broke up!

Not if your girlorboyfriend is in the bed next to the noisy screen saver.

DrCurry is right, but I still voted 'for'...

...it's your idea.

I've no objection to computer users having such devices, but I know that many truck stops on the interstate highways decline to sell such devices, or even to carry the batteries for them, because the device encourages drivers to continue to stay on the highway past their limits.
