I dunno if it is the end of daylight savings, the fact that it is getting colder in the mornings, or maybe just because I have been feeling crap (thanks TG) for the last few days, but I haven't been launching out of bed in the morning like I usually do, and have found myself pressing the snooze button at least twice before rolling out from beneath the doona.
Maybe I need an alarm clock, that, I dunno, rolls off the bedside table and hides from me so that I have to get up out of bed to shut it up. No, really!
Clocky is, quite simply, for people who have trouble waking up. When the alarm clock goes off and the snooze button is pressed, Clocky will roll off the bedside table and wheel away, bumping mindlessly into objects on the floor until it eventually finds a spot to rest. Minutes later, when the alarm sounds again, the sleeper must get up out of bed and search for Clocky. This ensures that the person is fully awake before turning it off. Small wheels that are concealed by Clocky's shag enable it to move and reposition itself, and an internal processor helps it find a new hiding spot every day.
Sure it's a crap name, and might look like a bit of ugly roadkill sitting on your bedside table (particularly after you've had to hunt it down at 5am), but is this not the neatest, if not most devious, alarm clock ever?
