Comments on Anemone Clock, Hug Shirt, Robot Dentist, Eternal Fridge Light? (They Must Be Fiction)
I sometimes read about devices and things that are so futuristic that they must be fiction. Four such items are described in this article. (Read
the complete story)
|"I just read about an alarm clock that moves and hides itself after it goes off - so heavy sleepers and "snooze" button users have to get up to find it."

|"I have been trying to find out more about the alarm clock and about how loud it is but can't seem to find out and i don't know when i would be coming out but my husband could really use it in iraq. He said that when you get use to the noises there it becomes harder to get up to a regular alarm clock. Other then not knowing how loud and annoying it really is it seems like a really great thing. As for the other things....the shirt sounds great for us spouses where our husbands are gone to iraq and we are takinf care of the kids by ourselves and really need a hug but have no one to give it to us. the dental thing actually soundds kinda scarey cause any malfunction could be brutal to the person and the fridge idea seems good for helpning with a healthier better life style but the money might not be in the budget of alot of average americans. Thank you for letting me express my opinion"
