Da Vinci alarm clock

An alarm clock for maintaining a polyphasic sleep routine (as opposed to monophasic, i.e. one long period of sleeping every night). There are different sleep patterns (as explained on Wikipedia), this clock is based on the so-called Uberman scheme, structured in 3.5/0.5 hours of waking/sleeping time. This would result in a total sleeping time of only 3 hours a day, thus netting you a lot more working time as compared to monophasic sleep.

Da Vinci himself is said to have slept even less every day, only around 2 hours.
