  47. carnivore

    you should have put the bacon alarm clock at the bottom everything after that one was just a disappointment because there was no bacon involved, only thing that could make it better was if it also made a fresh cup of coffee when it made the bacon.

  54. cody

  55. youngin`

  56. Ingrid-Charlotte

    Good ideas! I should get the one which runs off, I own the habit of snoozing, to much…

  57. hong

    Will the pillow alarm cause any side-effect to our brain?

  58. Lou

    Pillow Alarm Clock is awesome! I could so use that!
    Thanks much for sharing.

  59. dimitri

    Jeeps, you people are so eazy to pleaze.

    My fave is the smasher, but once the novelty wears out, none of these gadgets has a chance…

    Unless it fits in your pillow, makes bacon, runs off till you jump on it with your feet and it stops vibrating after you’ve done 30 reps.

    Then you can smash the sucker!

  60. ajay menghani

    great creativity.. great clocks.

    i m just loving it…

  61. Ernie

    I love the Smash Alarm Clock. Is it available? I wonder if I would have the energy to smash it though in the morning. LOL

  62. Raman

    I liked the shape up alarm clock that makes you wake up as you make 30 reps you don’t need to go to sleep again, or if you do then you need to sleep whole day to fulfill the laziness…………………LOL………………. The carpet alarm clock is also awesome coz that makes you really wake for which you need to step on it.

  63. rebeca

    i luv da gun one because alarm clocks are so annoying and now i can kill it YAY!!!!!!!

  64. bluepanda

    I got one of those fancy hammacher schlemer alarm clocks, the ones with smells and sounds and light, and it stopped working after like a month! these ones are really great and creative

  65. Ally

    I already had 5 of those ideas in one course in my uni degree 10years ago. Most of them i dismissed as unfeasable

  66. kim

    I really love “Bacon Alarm Clock.”

  67. Oliver

    I’m very much into these ideas and it makes me want to go back to industrial design

  68. Srimadhumohan

    Good creativity…. excellent….

  78. Dustin Qian

    where to buy them?I want show them to my client?

  79. Ricki

    I need the carpet alarm clock. and i would place it by my door and not my bed

  80. luis

    gun one is pretty sick

  81. People4Humanity

    Some days I just don’t want to get up.

    I’m thinking of buying the whole collection, bacon, run after it, carpet, smash, all except the gun, since I’m non-violent.

    Right now I use a Sonic Alert, which has a vibrator that shakes the whole mattress, while flashing a lamp beside the bed. The snooze override is too close to make it effective sometimes.

  82. Roman

    I like the silent one the most, its good uf you dont wwnt to wake up you roommates or houseguests, and good for people who let their alarm.clock.beep.for.ten minuted before snoozing it then letting it go off for another ten minutes, i also like the smash clock and carpet clock :D

  83. steven gray

    I must report that the gun in the gun alarm clock is not i repeat, is NOT a NES gun. the one pictured is in fact a SEGA Master System gun.

  84. Enrico Martinez

    Q: What’s the similarity between your alarm clock and your arch enemy?

    A1: Its the first thing you want to kill when you wake up in the morning.

    A2: Sometimes, you want them thrown outside your window (2nd floor and up is better)

    Someone should invent an “electric bed mattress” alarm clock. It would heat itself on your specified time, and be hot enough in the morning to make you rise-up (or jump-up) from your bed.
    Or a “shaking bed” alarm clock. Because of an attached motor, the bed will instantly violently rock you awake in the morning.

  85. bokajunior

    MMMMMM Bacon

  86. reza

    wow, so creative!I like pillow with LED.

  87. kathryn

    loved the carpet, silent, gun and bacon clocks


  88. ianbattlesrobots

    I love the pillow with the LED in it. Very cool, indeed. But the one that runs away from you, Clocky, just sounds brilliant. I could see it easily driving me mad every day :-)

  89. Lola

    love the pillow one, I WANT ONE!!!!

  90. Barney

    There’s this alarm clock called the Smile Alarm Clock which doesn’t turn off unless you smile at it. “start off your day with a smile” they said. :D just wanted you guys to know about this lol.

  91. adribalbas

    wierd but awsome, i want one

  92. Jack franklin

    The bacon one would be the best alarm in the world!!!!!!
