Tilt is an alternative to the typical alarm clock. As opposed to pushing the snooze button, Tilt’s customized bed frame actually gets you out of bed, helping to eliminate your snoozing habits. When your alarm goes off and a microphone connected to the Arduino detects this sound for at least 3 seconds, an air pump is triggered. The pump is connected to a vinyl plastic tube, which fills with air and acts as a jack underneath the mattress to raise one side of the bed. The angle of the bed increases, causing you to roll out of bed. Over time, people will develop a habit of actually getting up when the alarm goes off.
