It’s Friday, in case you hadn’t noticed, and I bet you’re all wondering how to fit in all that fun you’ve got planned for the weekend. You could always try going to space, after all the gravitational differences up there in the vast inky blackness means that time runs slightly slower. Hurray for space time, but there’s not much to do in space except catch up on all that Cosmos you missed. Plus the current economic situation, NASA’s budget cuts and the price of oil mean that space travel is unavailable for most. Well not until Richard Brandson pulls his socks up. So it’s down to just getting up early and getting on with things, and you know what that means. Alarm clocks. You could always try the traditional method, a cockerel. Probably not the best alarm clock though as it tends to be erratic and if you don’t have the space for a cock then you’re probably better off considering other options. Luckily there are loads of different alarm clocks out there, enough to satisfy even the weirdest tastes.
Most people view their alarm clocks as disagreeably explosive but imagine if yours was an actual bomb. The countdown is activated by pressing the red button not by the alarm though so luckily you’re not expected to defuse it in order to get some snoozing time.
Designed by Ena Macana this alarm clock takes off and flies round the room so you have chase it down. Just make like Harry Potter in a Quidditch match and you’ll be so pumped up that you’ll be able to take on anything. Angry dragons, angry bosses, angry dragons who are your boss, anything.
Designed by Will Vanden Vos this alarm clock is based on the flip clock but is stripped down to the bare essentials. It doesn’t do anything fancy, like run away when it goes off or emit nasty smells. For those who just aren’t morning people it’s just simple and beautiful, and only available from Japan.
