Waking up early is the worst – especially when your alarm goes off like a jackhammer in the middle of your dream.
Using your cell phone as your morning alarm is like using your cell phone as your daily timepiece: it works, but it’s bush league. Shopping for an alarm clock isn’t as simple as it seems. It involves a bunch of small decisions on price, features, and design that can be overwhelming.
1. Laser Target Alarm Clock
And speaking of having a good aim… Meet this cool design, a Laser Tag alarm clock that won’t shut off until you hit the center of the target with a laser beam from a hand-held remote pointer.
This alarm clock uses wifi connectivity along with your bank account log in details in which it can use to donate your money to an organisation you hate every time you push snooze.
3. No Snooze Alarm Clock
This alarm clock has a strap that needs to be lifted up and rotated continuously for 1.5 minutes. The minimum rotation allowed is 2 rotations per second. If the user goes slower than this, the beep of the alarm increases and the alarm resets to default, which asks the user to start the whole process again.
4. Silent Alarm Clock
Alarm clocks usually jolt us awake leading us to reach for the almighty snooze button. Silence is a conceptual alarm clock that allows you to program multiple alarms and wakes you without any sound. Each person wears a wireless rubber ring with an integrated vibration device that generates a tactile alarm. The snooze function is engaged by shaking your hand. However, each successive time you want to snooze, more movement is required, making sure you get to work on time.
