The SpinMe alarm clock app design cleverly forces you to preform physical activity before it will shut off. This ingenious alarm clock design cleverly uses sound and movement in order to wake you up.

While most alarm clocks traditionally use loud music or beeping sounds to wake you up, it's pretty easy to hit snooze or ignore the sounds and fall back asleep. To combat this problem the SpinMe app forces you to physically get out of bed and spin around two times before the sound will turn off. The app tracks your movement so it can recognize if you've done two full spins. The idea is to make you physically get up and moving so that you're less inclined to crawl back into bed and fall back asleep.
