Thursday Thirteen – Alarm Clocks That Are Guaranteed to Get You Out of Bed!

Thirteen Alarm Clocks That Are Guaranteed to Get You Out of Bed!

Blender Alarm Clock
It plays a cacophony of churning Styrofoam and absurd jingles simultaneously until you shut it off. It could at least make a latte while it’s at it!

Bomb Alarm Clock
You know that moment in a movie when the hero has mere seconds to dismantle a bomb before it explodes? You can experience that excitement every morning with the alarm clock. When the a series of loud explosive noises sound until you’ve successfully disconnected the correct wire. That’s just way too real looking!

Clock Man Alarm Clock
Clock Man refuses to shut up, even after you get out of bed. He’ll greet you when it’s time to get up, sing while you get dressed, and even yell if you anger him. Sound kind of annoying to me!

Clocky Alarm Clock
This cute clock rolls and leaps, from up to 3 feet, off your nightstand after one snooze. It also beeps and hides until you hunt it down. Just don’t kill it!

Drill Sergeant Alarm Clock
Ever wonder what waking up in the army would be like? Find out for yourself with this Drill Sergeant Alarm Clock, which blasts the army’s morning bugle call, “Reveille,” before your very own drill sergeant starts shouting orders. Yeah, not so much!

Dumbell Alarm Clock
It will shut off only after you’ve done 30 bicep curls. Think of the great exercise you’ll get. Just be sure to switch arms each morning!

Equation Alarm Clcok
When it goes off, the screen that normally shows the time displaya a plus or minus sign. You have to twist the dials to create an equation that makes sense before you can turn it off. I don’t know about you, but I can barely put my contacts in that early, much less do math!

KIM, the Talking Alarm Clock
She comes with gold metallic hair, a green speaker mouth, and a humanoid, robotic voice. Just press her nose and she’ll tell you the time. She’ll also flash her red eyes at you while crowing like a rooster when it’s time to get up. She kinda reminds me of Rosie on the Jetsons.

Laser Target Alarm Clock
A chance to improve your hand-eye coordination while still half asleep. When the alarm on the Laser Target clock sounds, you have to hit the bull’s eye with a handheld laser remote to silence it. Sounds kinda fun, but not when you’re half asleep!

Helicopter Alarm Clock
When the alarm goes off, the helicopter revolves, then flies away from the base. You have to get up to find the helicopter, then put it back on the base to stop the ringing. And do it while you’re half asleep!

Puzzle Alarm Clock
It launches three puzzle pieces into the air, kinda like that game Perfection. You have to put all three pieces into their matching holes to shut off the alarm. Unless they roll under the bed and you can’t find them, of course!

Rocket Launcher Alarm Clock
When the alarm goes off, it shoots a rocket off and the only way to turn it off is to locate the rocket and place it back on the launch pad. If you can find the dang thing!

Sonic Boom Clock
It has a 113-decibel alarm, which is about as loud as a jackhammer. But if the volume doesn’t wake you up, the red flashing lights and accompanying bed-shaker unit should do the trick. Not to mention freak you out!
