For those who have trouble waking up in the morning, maybe an eccentric and creative alarm clock could help make sure your not late. The main idea in these devices is hindering the process required to turn off the alarm, giving you no other option than to get up. Check out the list of creative alarm clocks and forget the meaning of snooze.
This first option is quite dynamic: Clocky gives you one chance to get up. But if you snooze, Clocky will jump off your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide, beeping all the while. You’ll definitely bewide awake after having to chase your alarm clock in order to silence it. The Clocky from Nanda Home brand can fall from a height of up to 3 meters, and rolling around on either floor or carpet. The battery is said to last a year and it’s simple design counts with a display showing the time and control buttons. Models are available in six different colors for $39,99.
2) Lock ‘n’ Load Gun and Target Alarm Clock
If you think testing your aim would be a good wake-up call, this alarm clock could be quite fun for you. Every morning you can wake up to one of three games. When the alarm goes off, the Gun O’Clock target pops up, and you have to grab the gun in time to shoot it to turn the clock off! It’s a great way to bring you to your senses when the snooze button simply isn’t an option.
3) TechTools Flying Alarm Clock
What if your alarm clock just flew away before you could hit that snooze button? That is what the creative minds from TechTools came up with when creating their flying alarm clock. The device has a propeller on top that separates from the base when the scheduled time triggers the alarm, and the sound only silences when the user finds the flying propeller and returns to the base.
4) Wake Up Work Out Alarm Clock
This alarm clock is definitely useful for those who like to get into shape early in the morning. The dumbbell shaped alarm clock only shuts off once you’ve done 30 bicep reps. Motion sensors inside can tell exactly how many reps you’ve done and only if you do them right, so you can’t cheat.
5) Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock
This option is a little less dynamic and lot more radical: it has a 113dB extra loud alarm —louder than a jackhammer or chainsaw— and a bed shaker. Sonic Alert’s Sonic Bomb with Super Shaker offers a combination of blaringly loud alarm and a vibration extension that’s great if you’re a deep sleeper or tend to sleep through an audio alarm. The noise is so loud and the shaker so intense that it’s not only guaranteed to wake you up, but also probably scar you for life.
6) Sharp Vibrating Pillow Alarm Clock
The idea of this clock is to wake up the user by vibrating, which means no obnoxious, buzzing beeps. Not only is this perfect for deep sleepers who completely ignore any and every sound around them, but it’s also quite interesting for people who share a room with someone who wakes up in different time. It is portable and can be placed next to the pillow, on the bed, table or other locations.
The last item on our list is the SensorWake, that wakes you up with the smell of chocolate, coffee and even the smell of money! So you wake up to your favorite smell and start the day happily. The project was successful on Kickstarter and it works as an olfactory alarm: just put custom cartridges in it to change the scent. And in case of stuffy nose, SensorWake includes an audio alarm that goes off after 3 minutes if you’re not awake.
