29 Geniuses Who Are Going Places, Not Far, Just Places.

The alarm that makes absolutely sure you wake up.

Just like the old saying goes: Not all heroes wear capes. And for that matter, not all geniuses bury their nose in books, solve equations, or master quantum physics. In fact, some of the most brilliant people in the world are living right among us, totally unnoticed.

Until now, that is.

The following list is a celebration of the kind of smarts that aren't celebrated by the Ivy Leagues, but instead manifest themselves as the most important ideas and practical solutions of our generation. These people have figured out how to live their best lives, and then did the human race a kindness by sharing their brilliance on the internet. If you're a naysayer, it's time to sit back, relax, and behold the most agile minds of our generation. You'll be in awe of their enterprising imaginations -- and mostly, you'll wish you had thought of it first. Every last one of these people should be in a museum someday.


This is for the type of person who could sleep through someone attempting to drill through their floor, or those who never feel like they hit the snooze button enough times. To put it succinctly, this takes the phrase "it hurts to wake up" to a whole new level.
