Scared of sleeping in?

It’s exam time, and we’re all studying at the most obscene hours of the day, hoping that we’ll get a decent grade in our courses.

Anybody but me scared of sleeping through your exam?

Well! If you’re like me, and have the same fear, why not buy one of these annoying alarm clocks?

#1 Sfera

Sfera is a radio alarm clock which hangs above your bed and wakes you in the morning by forcing you physically to get out of bed. When you set the alarm, the glowing Sfera gradually dims and the music gently fades out as you drift off to sleep. When the alarm chimes in the morning, the only way to silence it is to reach up and gently tap the Sfera. This action initiates the snooze function, but it also makes the Sfera rise above your head towards the ceiling. As it slowly rises away from your reach, you must stretch higher each time to gain another ten minutes of snooze. When it reaches the ceiling, you have no option but to reach for it and drag it back down to your bed – an action which switches off the alarm and forces you finally to get up.

#2 Flying Alarm Clock

The Flying Alarm Clock wakes you up with a loud shrieking alarm coupled with a little propeller-driven key that leaps off your nightstand. To turn off the horrible racket, you have to get out of bed and retrieve the key. The propeller flies the key high into the air and off into some dusty corner. You have to force your sleep addled brain into wakefulness, move your stiff legs and retrieve the key before the alarm goes off.

#3 Sonic Boom

The Sonic Bomb Clock has an adjustable volume alarm with a maximum loudness of 113 decibels (just for reference, a jackhammer is about 100 decibels!) And the bed shaker does just that. Slip it under your mattress and your ears will bleed and your bed will shake, and there is no way you will oversleep. Or, you could turn the sound alarm off and tape the bed shaker to your office chair. You’ll be vibrated awake without disturbing the drones. Then you can get back to your Ninja activity refreshed and ready for action.

#4 Clocky

This little wonderful wheeled alarm clock started as an engineering student’s project. Having trouble waking up herself, Gauri Nanda developed Clocky to shriek annoyingly and effectively, waking you up. The fun doesn’t end there, kiddies. It leaps off of your night stand, and drives around your room, making random turns and racing away from your grasp. Now you have to get out of bed and hunt the little bugger down to turn it off.

#5 Kuku Alarm Clock

At your pre-designated time, this annoying little thing starts making an odd crowing noise while laying five tiny eggs into a basket next to it. It’s not going to stop making that racket until you put the five eggs back into its little receptacle on top. If one of those little eggs falls off the table and rolls under the bed, never to be seen again, well, we wouldn’t blame you for smashing this oddly-colored little clock into tiny little pieces.
