If you're one of the 7 billion people in this world, you probably have trouble waking up in the morning. An impetuous inventor from the UK has just solved this problem.

Trouble waking up? This ejector bed should fix that

YouTuber Colin Furze built what he's calling a "High Voltage Ejector Bed," and the name pretty much says it all.

Furze built a metal frame which resembles a Murphy bed, except instead of folding backwards to be flush with a wall, it pushes the bed forward away from the wall. An air compressor powers two pistons which push the bed forward at a set speed. Furze also added lights and a couple of trumpets for maximum wake-up power.

In an email sent to Mashable, Furze said it only took two weeks to build and it worked on the first try. Eventually, he may try to improve upon the bed by devising a system which would get you dressed and fed as well.

"Anyone who could still stay asleep when this goes off is not human," said Furze in regards to the bed's effectiveness.

If this seems dangerous, that's because it probably is. Shockingly, it's not the most absurd thing Furze has done: this honor probably goes to his jet-engined go kart, or setting off 300 fireworks at once, or perhaps making flame throwers for his arms.

Colin Furze is clearly a man who knows no fear.

Waking up in the morning is definitely a challenge, but this solution seems just a little bit extreme. For those who think this is just what they need to help them get up every day, check out the video below where Furze details his process.
