so maybe this isn’t a “great thing” when it’s rolling around the floor beeping at 6am, but the Clocky (by MIT graduate student Gauri Nanda) delivers on it’s promise: to get you up. Hit “snooze” and this guy jumps off your nightstand, shelf or whatever and starts moving. The only way to turn it off is to hunt it down. So, you’re pretty much forced to get out of bed, which essentially defeats the reason for snoozing in the first place. There is the option to allow for a one-time snooze session and the wheels can be turned off, so it has the ability to act as your normal alarm clock; only way cooler looking. Available in other colors too, but my vote is for aqua.
