Markets in everything?, self-constraint edition

An alarm clock to get you out of bed in the morning:

Connects via WiFi to your online bank account, and donates YOUR real money to an organization you HATE when you decide to snooze!

Hat tips to Kottke and Magnetbox, apparently there is doubt as to whether this is real.  The wise guy also may wonder why you just don’t disable the snooze function on your alarm clock.  But of course that is precisely the sort of non-convexity that markets seek to avoid.  At times you will wish to sleep past your limit, even at your prespecified price, but perhaps you cannot always know in advance.
