Flintlock Alarm Clock

alarm clock

This mechanical marvel built in Austria sometime between 1715 and 1725 is handy alarm clock. When the alarm is activiated, the clock rings a bell and triggers a flintlock mechanism. That latter part doesn't fire a gun, but instead lights a candle. This would be handy if you're getting up at some indecent hour--a highly overrated practice.
