    Seriously, how do deaf people wake up? As I was lying down on my bed yesterday I was thinking about a webpage with some odd alarm clocks. Some of them you have to chace around your room to silence them lol. Some of them even vibrate to make you you wake up, so I was wondering, how do alarm clocks for deaf people work?

    My sister has one and it looks like a normal alarm clock but it has another part that goes under a pillow and vibrates, never seems to get her out of bed mind.

    They supply them free of charge to deaf people, they are normal alarm clocks that vibrate like mobile phones and attach under pillows.

    My fiancee is deaf and it scares the bejesus out of me every morning :eek:

    Yeah, I bet it annoys her.

    That's why every morning at 7.30 all you can hear from her room is

    *buzzzzzzzzz*

    'ohhhh, ohhhhh, ahhhhh, ****, aaaaaaaaahhhh, uhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhh'

    i think "Mr Beans" method of hosepipe attached to the timed coffee maker machine down to the toes is a surefire way of getting you up in the morning!

    They need a mechanism that drops a sweaty sock under their nose at the right time.

    An automatic device shoots them in the face with a paintball gun.

    Probably why alot of deaf people are also blind. :(
