We’ve all overslept before, either because we didn’t hear our cell phone alarms go off or we hit snooze one too many times. The makers of these alarm clocks tried to find a solution to our inherent love of staying in bed and came up with some of the most creative, unique, and downright annoying (in a good way!) products that will get you up and out of bed, ready to start the day. If the fear of not waking up to your alarm keeps you up at night, you should check these out. Warning: these unique alarm clocks are not for people with messy rooms!
1. Crazy Blender Alarm Clock ($71)
This clock looks like a totally retro blender straight out of the 60s. The base is a digital alarm clock and the “blender” is filled with Styrofoam beads. When the alarm goes off, a song plays and the beads whirl around inside the blender making a noise that will definitely wake you up.
2. Puzzle Alarm Clock ($67)
This little analog clock will have you waking up totally puzzled. When the alarm sounds, it shoots puzzle pieces off of the top and they go flying. In order to silence the alarm you have to collect the pieces and put them in their rightful place.
3. Target Alarm Clock ($20)
With this digital clock you can enjoy target practice every morning. In order to shut off the alarm, you have to shoot the matching laser gun at the target and make a perfect bullseye.
4. Bomb Alarm Clock ($31)
Talk about a time bomb! With this alarm clock you can wake up feeling like James Bond every morning. In order to shut off the alarm you have to disarm the bomb – and the code resets every morning.
5. PI-722 Flying Alarm Clock ($25)
When this alarm goes off, the base of the clock shoots a rotor up into the air that flies around the room. To shut it off, you have to catch the flying rotor and put it back in the base.
6. Clocky Robotic Alarm ($50-$60)
Clocky is a digital alarm clock on wheels that jumps off your nightstand when it goes off and hides in your room, ensuring that you wake up to a game of hide-n-seek every morning. Clocky also comes in 3 different colors.
7. Nobby Voice Recognition Alarm Clock ($170)
Nobby looks like a cute little alien, but don’t let it fool you. Nobby is completely interactive and can have a conversation with you, but be warned – he will annoy you until you wake up. Don’t feel bad if you want to wring his neck – that’s the only way to shut off the alarm anyway.
