I've already rigged the "Achievement Unlocked" sound on the alarm of my cell phone, so this would be nothing new for me. I even have the sound set for when I get text messages. xD

did a little snooping this is from the video if you guys haven't been opening a new page

"My launch 360's disc drive broke and M$ wants 200 to fix it so I said screw that and decided to make it into something useful.

Edit: Yes I am aware that it uses an unreasonable amount of energy. I usually leave the TV off and usually just have it on while I sleep for just the alarm feature I do not use it as my primary clock

Edit 2: Due to all the positive feedback I have gotten in my email I am going to make the software I run available to those that want it. If you have a modded 360 and know what you are doing/arn't going to blame me if you screw it up email me and I will get you to the software.

Edit 3: Really I understand the power concerns STOP FILLING MY EMAIL WITH COMPLAINTS. I MADE THE TV SCREEN BLACK ON PURPOSE BECAUSE IT TAKES LESS POWER ON A CRT TO DISPLAY BLACK."

YouTube - Folgers [Best Part of Waking Up 1] (1984)
The best thing about waking up is achievement in your cup

Nah but that sound would get annoying after a while.

I hate Folgers. It used to be good but compared to the other grinded coffee you can get at the supermarket now, it's garbage.

That is a pretty sick alarm clock though, but why does the kids tongue keep coming out, lol, wtf.

lol, I really doubt that this is true and if it is then it would be the most insignificant saving of power ever. Plus that is a nice way to really break your xbox for good leaving it on for all that time.

I would not like to have that wake me up it would probably make me hate the achievement pop up sound and I like getting achievements so we wouldn't want that now :p

Possibly the worst presented video ever and what a way to end it: "Uhhhh...."

As if that noise doesn't fuck with my mind enough already. I always hear that noise in my head even when I'm not playing the 360, it's annoying.

i think my love for achievments out weights my hate for alarm clocks 100 to 1. so i don't think id get tired of the noise i think id just like waking up lol. maybe if i stoped playing 360 and i only heard that noise when im waking up id get sick of it but with me :locked achievements all the time id probably associate it with hapiness for ever and make getting up actually kinda sweet.

EEREEREEREEREEREEREEREEREEREEREER!

Yeah, I'd take the achievement sound. But I think it would've been easier to rig an old fashioned alarm clock with a new sound... wouldn't it? You know... rather than turning a tv, 360 and speaker into an alarm clock?

Just a thought.

skillet from my understanding of it his 360 broke and was out of waranty so just sort of as a goof he made this. he didn't really spend 300 to make this but he just had a broken pile of junk that did cost him 300 and he was capable of making this.. idk could be wrong guy could be a nut with tons of dough but thats what i got out of the description.
