Mon, Mar 13, 2006


Ahh…the love-hate relationship that we all have with our alarm clocks. Why endure those harsh buzzing noises every morning when you could make things just a little more interesting? Here are some of the coolest alarm clocks available via the web that could spice up the first few minutes of your everyday life.

The Kuku Alarm Clock

Kuku Alarm Clock
At your set time, the clock begins laying its little eggs and starts chirping away. Unless you return all the eggs into the basket, it won’t stop buzzing! A great way to exercise your drowsy brain. And definitely makes waking up to work a little more fun!

The Sight, Sound and Scent Alarm Clock

Sight, Sound and Scent Alarm Clock
Thirty-minutes before your wake-up time, the light on this clock gradually brightens, while releasing faint aromatherapy scents and producing soft nature sounds. And finally at the set time, a buzzer sounds to make sure you wake up. If the combined “sight”, “sound” and “scent” is still unable to wake up you, I guess an extra “kick” from your family members would be required.

The Hide-and-Seek Alarm Clock

Hide-and-Seek Alarm Clock
How about a little game of hide-and-seek every morning? Every time you hit the snooze button, the clock rolls off to hide. And when the alarm sounds again, you would have no choice but to get up and seek out the clock to off it for good.

The Axbo alarm clock analyzes your sleeping stage via the wireless wristband, and decides an appropriate time that is close to your set time to wake you up. It is claimed that waking up at the right time this way could let you wake up feeling more refreshed.

The Projection Alarm Clock

Projection Alarm Clock
This Ferrari-branded alarm clock is able to project a logo of our favorite horse together with the current time onto the wall or ceiling. Interesting twist to time-reading! And when it’s time to wake up, the clock greets you with the sweet sound of a Ferrari roar. Better if you got the real deal sitting outside your house waiting.

The Wooden Alarm Clock

Wooden Alarm Clock
The time on this clock seems to mysteriously appear on its smooth wooden surface. But it is in fact being shone through a layer of wood that is very thin. With no visible controls and buttons, the clock is perfect for minimalist lovers.

    But what about the voco clock?

    Stephen Fry wakes you up with things like. . . “I’m so sorry to disturb you sir but it appears to be morning. Very inconvenient I agree sir. I believe it is the rotation of the earth that is to blame.”


    “Come, come sir. let us not be defeated. Let us seize the day and take it roughly from behind. As the colonel used to say in his unfortunate way.”

  7. Jack House Says:

    You need to introduce an alarm clock for couples that can wake up up only one of the sleepers. This could be done be a vibration under the pillow or a similar device. Dual alarms would be great. My wife has a different schedule than mine. Her alarm wakes me and drives me nuts. I;m sure their are thousands that have the same issue. If someone could come up with something like this I’m sure it would be very popular and a big seller. I,ve given this a lot of thought. Call or e-mail me for details.

    Thenks. Jack House

    There’s one like that called “The Sensory Assault Alarm Clock,” it has a vibration pad that you put under the pillow or sheet. Also, It has a strobe light and 95db sounds. You can choose between methods, either all three, two or just the one. In your case you’d obviously choose the vibration method as first phase for her then the sound phase for yourself.
