We certainly love to sleep – to some of us, sleep is a luxury, to others, it may even be a hobby or a favorite pastime. A common problem for almost everyone would probably be to wake up in time! Be it for work, class or meetings, the alarm clock is a must-have item in the bedroom. But if you’re bored with simple alarm clocks, then you are going to love this list.
Defusable Alarm Clock
One of the conversation-inducing alarm clocks on the list, if a friend were to find this baby on your desk, you’d have some explaining to do. It’s not as difficult to disarm as a real life bomb, but the defusable alarm clock does tick down to ‘explosion’ within 10 seconds. And even then the beeps are not really earth-shattering but seriously, that’s one nice decoration piece to put on your desk.
DangerBomb Alarm Clock
That bomb alarm too easy for you? Then try this DangerBomb alarm clock. Cut the right wire to stop the alarm, or else your mornings will be announced with a kaboom sound. The wires are changed randomly every morning so you best be alert to cut the right wire.
Target Alarm Clock
If you are a sucker for shooting games, you must try this Target alarm clock. The rules are easy: the clock will sound the alarm based on the time you set, and you need to stop it by using the laser target gun to shoot the bullseye. To help make you aim better, you should try putting your ex’s photo there. Just a thought.
Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock
If you think that you can still out-sleep most of the alarm clocks above, you’d probably have to crank the sound up a notch or two. The Sonic Bomb alarm clock is intentionally designed for mega-heavy sleepers because if 113 decibels (louder than a rock concert) isn’t able to wake you up, nothing will. Note that regular exposure to these levels of loudness can make you permanently deaf so you might want to go further down the list for a better alternative.
IQ Alarm Clock
Here’s one for Mensa group members; the IQ Alarm Clock doesn’t take a snooze for an answer. To make it stop ringing, solve an IQ question, and this is not the riddle me this type, it’s a standard IQ test. I would love to hate this clock, but the design is so sleek that I wouldn’t mind to have one in my bedroom – without batteries of course.
Shape Up Alarm Clock
This Shape Up alarm clock is absolutely the best gift for your lazy partner. Work out while you try to wake up by swinging this heavy little friend up down 30 times to stop the alarm. I’m not sure how long this one will continue being your daily alarm clock before ending up thrown out the window.
Sfera Alarm Clock
Want an alarm clock that allows you to snooze then get this Sfera alarm clock. When the time has come, you can tap the alarm to stop sounding. If you go bak to sleep, the clock will start to rise up towards the ceiling; steal an extra 5 or 10 more minutes, and you’d need to prepare yourself a ladder so to reach the ceiling, because that’s where the alarm clock will be! Drag it back down to your bed to fully deactivate the alarm clock.
No Snooze Alarm Clock
Once this alarm clock rings, you have to lift the strap and twirl the strap for 90 seconds, managing two rotations for each second. The No Snooze Alarm Clock will not stop if you go too slow or if you stop completely halfway through. In fact, you have to make the full run again if you fail halfway. No snooze button included. This is a cruel one.
Water Spray Alarm Clock
Trying to sleep in for 10 more minutes? Expect the Water Spray alarm clock to launch a water attack on you then. It not only does ranged damage but splash damage as well, so either wake up at the sound of the alarm, or prepare to towel off the pools of water all over your room. Beats being woken up with a pail of water, I guess.
Here’s another creative way to wake up. The Banclock will only stop ringing if you put a coin in it. It’s the perfect way to make sure that you save some money every single day. Honestly, I don’t know how this could wake you up but it is a great alarm clock for kids who are finding it hard to save their pocket money.
