The IQ alarm clock

by Mark R

I don’t know about you, but I can’t really figure out at what point in time to I become truly awake. We once covered devices like the SleepTracker that find the primary “wakeup point” of the user, but this IQ Alarm has a different idea.

Imagine if you had an alarm that puts you in a mentally ready state so that you will want to get up, because you are too intellectually stimulated to go back to sleep again.

That would be the IQ Alarm, a concept device that wakes the user up with the usual alarm sound, but in order to make the alarm stop, you have to answer one to three questions.

My Source does not say what happens if the user does not answer the questions correctly. Hopefully this won’t cause the IQ Alarm clock to sound even louder. By the way, there clock has a tamper-resistant battery cover, so you won’t be able to just shut the thing off by removing the power source.

By the way, where will the questions come from? There had better be at least five years worth of morning trivia in there. Perhaps it will be connected via Wi-Fi to a constantly changing trivia site. Well, it is still a concept for now.

By the way, you can’t really see the question, but it reads: “Which of the following figures is the odd one out?” Anyone want to leave a comment with the answer, and an explanation? I believe I know it, but I won’t tell you.

Cool idea! I would buy it in a heart be if it had 5 years worth of puzzles, the answer is either B or D. B, because the square on the circle is high up and all the other squares are lower. Also the dots in the center lean towards the right and the others lean left. Or D, because all the squares are on the left side while that one is on the right.
I’m going to say the answer is B!

The answer is C

The answer is B, becuase it is the only one that the dots point to the bottom left-top right

The answer is B. The three dots are aligned in a top left to bottom right in a diagonal manner in answer A., C., and D. but not B. Leaving B. the odd one out.

The answer is C. If you turn all the other circles ( A, B and D), you will realize that they are all the same figure just turn in different ways. However, if you turn figure C, you will realize that it is not the same and does not match up.

I’d say B then when the alarm didn’t turn off I’d throw it out the window
