TIme Machine Robots
By incorporating interesting engineering and computer science concepts, your alarm clock could wake you up by tickling you, telling you a joke, or maybe even squirting you with water! Using computer programming and electro-mechanical engineering, you can create an alarm clock that wakes you up the way you want to be woken up!
Its been very rough getting out of bed in the morning, disrupting your dreams and putting you in a foul mood for the rest of the day. You are asked to come up with an alarm clock that wakes you up with a smile on your face!
