Can This Alarm Clock Help You Be More Generous and Get to Work On Time? Idea: Alarm Clock Charges You for Hitting Snooze, Donates to Charity

That concept motived the snarky folks at ThinkGeek to dream up a concept for the SnūzNLūz alarm clock, which flips the incentives. You pay to causes that you hate with each snooze use. "Are you a butcher? Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to PETA! Are you a Republican? Set your SnūzNLūz to donate to the ACLU!" they write.

Clever satire, but there are many other potential uses for LetGive's concept of integrating donations within daily usage apps. We're eager to see what they come up with next.
