Sounds Pretty Amazing! Microsoft’s New Alarm App makes you feel like Insane in Morning

Are you bored of hearing your daily monotonous ringing alarm sounds? If yes, don’t worry now, Microsoft has come up with something new and exciting for you. In order to show its machine learning skills, Microsoft has come up with an Android alarm app, dubbed as the Mimicker Alarm, which is completely different from its regular alarm. Most of us wake up with an intolerable hour to the sounds of wind chimes, some European techno, or just a really annoying buzzer, Microsoft has other plans for our morning ritual.

Now, you will be excited to know more about the Mimicking Alarm, here’s the answer to your all questions. As the name suggests, the mimicking alarm does the normal alarm thing of waking you up, but it then expects you to play a game. Instead of dashing to the restroom and getting ready for work, Microsoft's Android alarm app plays three games with you: express yourself, color capture, and tongue twister. It will be the users’ choice to select which game he wants to play. Allison Light, a program manager for Microsoft's Project Oxford team, said that once you dismiss an alarm you have 30 seconds to complete the game. “If you don't complete that game in time, we assume you've fallen back asleep and then the alarm will start ringing again”. Thankfully, you can choose the sounds and games so you can simply make a dumb face at the camera and not have to run around your house to find something green in the darkness of winter.

Mimicker Alarm might sound like the worlds most insane and annoying alarm, but it's really designed to be a fun little app that shows off Microsoft’s machine learning capabilities. “We are showcasing several different Project Oxford APIs”. Since we're open sourcing all of the code, we thought an alarm app would be easy for other developers to read the code and see how we used the APIs. Interested users can get the app download from Google Play Store.
