DIY Alarm Volume Booster

wineglass amplifierBy David Ponce

I bet this has been around for a while, but what the hell, some of y’all might not know. I didn’t.

If you constantly miss your cellphone alarm in the morning (because, you see, people don’t use regular alarms anymore), it might be because it’s not loud enough. One quick and easy way to amplify it is to:

1) Find suitably large wine glass.
2) Break off stem.
3) Insert mobile inside and point towards your head.

Alternatively, you could try not getting wasted the night before. You may find that you hearing improves dramatically.

    Very original idea!

    I’ve post in my blog/italian language:

    This is pointless – what am I going to drink my wine in now? A leather pouch?

    That sounds like a cool prank to play on a hungover person and wake him up with a loud peircing beeeeeep! Nice! πŸ˜‰

    Is there a need for the wine glass to be broken? I mean, you could always re-use the wine glass if it wasn’t.

    This seems like a potentially bad idea. When you reach over to shut your alarm off in a half-asleep state, you may end up smashing the glass or knocking it onto the floor, where it will burst into a thousand glass shards. That might wake you up quickly, but I imagine cleaning up all the broken glass and blood probably wouldn’t be worth the effort. πŸ™‚
