The Hanging Alarm Clock follows on from the huge success of it’s annoying brother, the flying alarm clock, and has got to be one of the best alarm clock designs we’ve ever seen. To use, all you need to do is attach the clock to your ceiling by the supplied cable, set the alarm and fall asleep. When the alarm goes off to the sound of the Close Encounters of the Third Kind, you reach up to hit the snooze button, and the clock will reel up the 30cm cable in one minute. Each time you snooze it, the hanging alarm clock will wind up another 30cm. The idea is that eventually you will have to drag yourself out of bed to reach the alarm and switch it off. This gradual awakening will gently rouse you from your sleep but also make sure you actually make it out of bed.
