We all hate alarm clocks. The shrill rings, the abrupt ends to really awesome dreams and sometimes the loss of an alarm clock as they are flung across the room for the sake of some good ol’ shut eye. Admittedly, for those who love their hours of zzz-s, the phrase, “cool alarm clock” won’t really move their needles, but Executive Traveller assures you that these are some very cool alarm clock every gadgethead should boast of.
Clocky Alarm Clock
Those of you who thrive on pushing buttons and shutting the alarm off for the few extra minutes of blissful sleep, this is bad news for you. Fitted with wheels, this alarm literally goes off. Once you hit the snooze button, the clock jumps up (and it can jump almost three feet into the air) and wheels across your room, and wheels around your room looking for a place to hide before it sounds the alarm a second time. The snooze time can be set from 0-9 minutes, so if you set it at 0 Clocky runs right away. For those who like a little game of hide and seek in the morning, this is the best thing to start the day with.
Wake n’ Bacon
Imagine waking up to the smell of freshly fried bacon. A splendid thought, is it not? The Wake n’ Bacon alarm clock wakes you up with the tempting aroma of bacon browning in the oven, just like the ones mom makes on Sunday mornings. Just remember to place a frozen strip of bacon inside the night before and the next morning, 10 minutes before the desired waking time, the cooking process will start. Once the alarm goes off, you’ll hear the alarm sound and not only you’ll wake up but you’ll have your breakfast ready.
Lightsleeper Alarm Clock
Sunshine in your eyes is perhaps one of the most efficient ways to wake anyone up. And the Light Sleeper alarm does exactly that. Made of a pillow and a duvet that were designed to make our body clock respond to an imitation sunrise, accelerating the wake-up process. This creative alarm will make the bedding gradually begin to glow in a natural rhythm over a 15-20 minute period, so you can wake up kind of ‘spontaneously’.
Shape Up Alarm Clock
For the fitness freaks, this wake up call is the best swag to boast of. By needing to swing it thirty odd times to make it stop, this is not just an alarm clock, it is a precursor for your daily work out too. However, for the lazier or the impatient ones, this might not be a great idea. You never know when your love for sleep overtakes your love for working out and the poor alarm clock is mercilessly tossed out of the window.
Target Alarm Clock
If shooting at things is your favourite game, this alarm clock is the best deal for you. The perfect little game for the FPS fans, to make the alarm clock stop, all you have to do is aim and hit the bullseye with the laser target gun that comes with it. For those who have little grudges against people, placing an image of the not so loved one at the target might just improve your aim.
Smash Alarm Clock
Remember the times you have wanted to smash someone’s head right in? This alarm clock lets you do exactly that. By providing you with the perfect top surface to punch in every morning, this works great as an anger management exercise. But however, a hard punch is all that can stop the clock from ringing out shrilly. So we suggest you pack in a hefty punch.
Money Shredding Alarm Clock
For the ones who have deep-seated emotional bonds with their beds, this alarm clock might just be the only way out. As the alarm goes off, the clock starts to shred the note inserted in the clock and waking up, stopping the alarm and pulling the note out is the only way to stop the mindless and heartbreaking destruction.
IQ Alarm Clock
For the smarter ones who like a little bit of a brain workout to start their days with, this is the perfect alarm clock for them. This sleek, well-designed clock only stops ringing when you wake up to solve the IQ questions it generates for you. For the not very bright ones, this one can be a bad purchase even though it looks great on the bedside table.
Water Spray Alarm Clock
Remember the times your mum threatened to empty a bucket of water on you to get you out of bed? This alarm clock doesn’t threaten. It goes right ahead and sprays you with a cold blast. Equipped to do both splash and range damage, you have two options when the alarm sounds: wake up or be doused with water.
