Subscribe to our Newsletters

Take the principle of multiplayer online games and use it to get your sorry tush out of bed. The app is called Wake ‘N Shake, and its victims can accumulate points by competing with other snoozers in a race to shut off their smartphone’s alarm. Not just any alarm. One of the choice is a profoundly disturbing,  funhouse-style maniacal laugh.
 
Thing is, with this app, you have to shake the phone repeatedly like its a spray paint can to turn it off Just the way to start your day: out of your mind.
