(Scroll down for video) You better get up when your alarm sounds because if not you stand to lose your money.

If you are one of those people who struggle to get up in the morning when the alarm goes off, this new device, which shreds your money if you do not stop the sound, may be just what you need.

This latest alarm clock was designed by Rich Olson, who said that he combined a Sparkfun ClockIt and a USB paper shredder in order to create the machine.

The U.S. inventor programmed the device to shred a dollar bill if you do not press the button within a few seconds.

Feedback for this new concept however, was not that all positive for Olson, as he also had to face accusations that may be committing a federal crime by destroying U.S. currency.

The clock crusher architect did not seem to care much, and said: “To all those who say that the government is going to take me away, I’m not worried at all.”

Some think that it may be necessary to increase the amount of money in the shredder because most people won’t care about losing $1 in order to gain a little more sleep.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
