This is The Barisieur, a fancy coffee brewing alarm clock that looks like a mini meth lab designed and built by Josh Renouf. Because when you wake up, you need coffee, and you need it f***ing NOW. Not a bad idea (just not as good as an IV on a timer that starts injecting coffee straight into your veins at 7AM).
Instead of a jarring alarm, the Barisieur wakes the user through the subtle sound of steel balls jostling in a water boiler -- the balls heat the water through induction -- and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The device also features a drawer for coffee grounds and sugar, and a vial for milk.
Awesome, I'm going to build my own. I will not do a very good job. Then, one day in the very near future, I will wake up in the morning to my nightstand on fire. Which *lightbulb goes off in head* OMG -- an alarm clock that wakes you up with a house fire! Get up or die, it's genius! *patting myself on the back* Whoa, do I have a nipple back there?!
Keep going for several closeups.
Thanks to Thomas W, who wakes up the old fashioned way: when the sun comes up. Classic!
