Although you have to laugh at the absurd demo vid above, you still have to admire the great engineering work. The pneumatic bed shaking alarm clock is for the deepest sleepers you know. The contraption works by an air fed valve from two compressors which jolt the bed and your bones in that order.
The video shows a pneumatic valve attached to the bed. The valve is like a pneumatic lift which lifts the bed with intake of air. The valve is fed air from two sources â€“ a large liquid cooled air compressor under the basement stairs and a secondary source of pressurized air (at 150psi) from the car compressor. A computer controls the valve and triggers the bed bouncing action dot on the programmed time. The pneumatic force can be turned on and switched off with a keystroke.
