Did I make you yawn?! Sometimes just seeing the word is all it takes to trick us into making the universal expression for “I’m sleepy.” Inspired by this contagious phenomenon, the Slock: Go Sleep clock is a twist on the traditional alarm clock with functionality that’s actually quite the opposite.
Instead of waking you up with a blaring alarm sound, it encourages you to get to bed at a decent hour each night by making you yawn! Simply set your desired bedtime and a built-in mechanical flipbook will play an animation of a character yawning at the same time as an audio clip of a yawn plays. If that’s not enough to make you yawn and your eyes get heavy, nothing will!
