Yours truly can sleep through even the loudest of bedside alarms but Iâ€™m pretty sure if the sounds were blasted directly into my ear canal I would wake up pretty quickly. Thatâ€™s part of the idea behind the Earlarm from Mini Castle.
It looks and functions like an earbud-type headphone but without any of the cords. And from what I can tell itâ€™s completely self-contained so you donâ€™t need a separate audio source.
The Earlarm website has a list of possible uses including as an alert to not miss your stop on public transportaion, during driving to remind you when itâ€™s time to take a break and even as a personal wake-up alarm that wonâ€™t bother anyone sleeping nearby.
Itâ€™s currently available for $14.99.
