Waking up is hard but it doesn't have to be! Using light instead of noise as an alarm clock can help tremendously.

I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and have seen significant improvements.

    That link to the code just takes me to a spammy ad website, can you prove a download link to the code please?

    That's actually a nice device! Can I make one suggestion please? Use github for you code. Not only is it a really professional, free vehicle to share code with all versioning stuff you will ever need, it also won't screw up people's phones opening your link ;-)
