How can I create a water sprinkler alarm clock? Answered

Hi,

I am trying to create an LED analog alarm clock. I want to set up a little water sprinkler with that too. Like when ever the alarm goes off, it starts sprinkling water on you and wakes you up. The sprinkler system should be attached to the clock and the whole clock goes on to the wall above the bed and from there the water is sprinkled on to the user.

I am using Arduino Mega to create my project.

Please HELP!!!

Have a little electric motor with a blade that spins into a tray of water, and throws it off the blade at you.

But with the electric motor and the tray; is the water going to go in all directions? like in circular form at 360 degrees. How would I make it go in one direction like right under the bed?

1. A wet bed isn't very nice

2. If your alarm isn't waking you then likely the water won't unless excessive (see point 1)

3. Get 2 or 3 loud alarm clocks set then 30, 15 and 15 mins before you need to get up. Put them ACROSS the room so you HAVE to get up to turn them off. Works best with a alarm that rings for a long time.

4. Get to bed at a reasonable time so you have enough sleep and you will awaken naturally.

I say use one with a speaker and use the speaker to trigger your sprinkler.
