SAM LABS

Concept :
The device - 'You Snooze You Lose' would be kept outside the bedroom. When the alarm rings, the first one to run to the device to records that they are awake - by tapping on the button provided, wins. This is recorded every weekday and at the end of the week, a tweet is sent from the winner's account for the world to know who woke up earlier.
