The category of the snooze-evading alarm clocks is rapidly expanding. Sleepers apparently have finally figured out that they can simply turn off their alarms, sparking a race of innovation.
A Taiwanese designer has created the Blowfly Flying alarm clock. The devices flies away, making annoying noises while hovering over your sleepy head. There is no snooze button. Instead you'll have to get up, catch the device and place it back in its cradle. By then – the designer hopes - you're properly awake.
Earlier this year we've seen the emergence of Clocky the roll-away alarm clock and the more scientifically accepted Sleepsmart system that monitors the user's sleep patterns. It wakes up the victim up at the most optimal cycle, preventing the REM sleep from being cut short.
The flying alarm has obvious security issues, so I'll opt for the cuddly Clocky. If you have to wake up, it better be because of something furry rather than through an air assault.
