Gong Alarm Clock

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech

Gong ClockIf you are someone who can’t quite get up in the morning during the workweek, try this Gong Alarm Clock that will beat until you have had enough. The clock is backlit with an easily readable display and has a snooze function. We think it would certainly be a fun gift for kids on school days or adults who dug the opening of Rank Oganisation movies. You can get gonged for £14.99 (~$21.00.).

Vibrating Alarm Clock

Can’t stand noisy alarms? The Vibrating Alarm Clock goes under your pillow or blanket and it will shake you into submission. It also works by audible mode and has a built-in light so that you can shut it off in the dark. Karlson’s timepiece can be set with the sliding cover so that you won’t roll over and accidentally set it off. It also features a snooze mode and comes with its charging base and adapter at a $49.31 price. Those fearful of earthquakes should probably pass on this one.

The imaging includes a shower, coffee brewing, a toaster, and tooth brushing. To see a demo and hear the strange sounds it makes, check designer Melanie Graf’s site. There is only one glitch to her prototype that we can figure. There would never be enough guilt to have to go through the routine day after day. Hmm. Maybe Pandora would be a good thing.
