This is how the experts make sure they get more riding. On nice days this voice alarm clock speaks: “It’s going to be a gorgeous, clear, sunny day, so GET OUT OF BED NOW!” The phrases vary depending on conditions outside. You decide to sleep in… or wake up… while still in bed. If it’s cool and raining, this alarm clock voices: “Go ahead and sleep in. Rest up. The weather stinks today.” How does it work? External probes continuously monitor precipitation, temperature, humidity, wind velocity, barometric pressure and other current conditions. An advanced internal microprocessor uses a US weather bureau developed fuzzy logic algorithm to decide (on a continuously updated basis) which (of ten different) alarm message to deliver… and it makes the right choice 93.2% of the time! Low cost accessory modules can telephone your work and deliver pre-recorded but plausible excuse for lateness or for missing the whole day. Keep ahead of those unreliable commercial weather forecasts. Includes walnut and transitive subwoofers. Tim Carrithers endorsed.
