Drowse Buster-E Stay-Awake Wearable
Who's up for a little classical conditioning? The Drowse Buster-E is a wearable for sleepy drivers, students, and office workers who need a little...stimulation to stay awake while engaged in mind-numbing activities after their mind is already craving a pillow. (If your mind is like mine, it's usually a Buttress Pillow.)
The self-described "anti-sleepy gadget" clips underneath your earlobe, an area ancient Chinese studies suggest reduces fatigue when stimulated, and delivers a, well, I'm not quite sure what at regular intervals while in use. Drowse Buster-E refers to the wake-up signals it sends simply as "a light stimulus," and "massage settings," but does that mean pressure? Vibration? Shock?
Yeah, I agree. With such suspicious euphemisms, it almost certainly means shock.
The Drowse Buster-E's earlobe cords run into a palm-sized rechargeable base you can either keep in your lap or connect to your seatbelt while driving. You set the base to deliver its "reminders" every 90 seconds, 3 minutes, or 5 minutes, and can choose from 5 different intensity settings. Happy wakey-wakey, sleepy heads!
