A Money-Shredding Alarm Clock = Guaranteed Wake-Up

Design, moneyshredding, alarmclock

Time is money, and I'd definitely be more inclined to start my day more quickly if my clock was burning through my Benjamins.

I spent some time trying to locate the designer of this concept clock, but alas, I could not find the source. Anyone know? I'd as to whether there's a grace period of a few seconds for you to actually process the alarm and turn it off or if it immediately starts mutilating. And does it shred slowly if you hit the snooze? It seems the idea would be motivating conceptually even with legal-to-destroy fake money.
