VIDEO: Money Shredding Alarm Clock - THIS WILL GET YOU OUT OF BED! - Watch Here!

by Ben Olson

Here's a new alarm clock with the ultimate incentive to get you out of bed in the morning. American inventor Rich Olson combined an alarm clock and a paper shredder to create a device that shreds your money if you don't get up and turn it off. He programmed the alarm clock to tear up a one dollar bill if the user doesn't turn it off within a few seconds. A YouTube clip of the device in action has been getting a lot of attention although some have pointed out that Olson might be committing a federal offence by destroying currency. Olson played down the risk, commenting, "To all those saying the feds are going to take me away - I'm not that concerned." (Ananova)
