Someone’s knocking at the door, someone’s ringing the bell

The Nuclear Doorbell is presumably designed for masochists with standard hearing who want to be alerted by sirens, screeching monkeys, or the Loud Voice of Doom every time the button is pressed. What caught our attention, though, is that it also comes with a flashing light. Therefore, people who are Deaf or hard of hearing could have an appropriate signaling system for about $24, instead of needing visual alert devices that you add to an existing doorbell setup and that cost easily twice that much. This is a shining (OK, flashing) example of the AoMS ideal: a product world where access is built in rather than requiring “special,” costly add-ons.
