IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS GETTING UP IN THE MORNING and hauling yourself down to work or school, then this is going to be the most important article you’ll see all year. Here’s why…
Do you know the reason why it’s so hard to get up early in the morning?
Maybe it’s because you stayed up too late last night playing Candy Crush… Or because of that intense 1 on 1 basketball duel you had with your rival at midnight… Or because you almost fried your brain cells the previous night coming up with design ideas for your client…
The reason why you find it so hard to get up is because… your alarm clock just isn’t good enough. Get one of these creatively designed alarm clocks, and just see if you don’t wake up… No joke.

The Gong Alarm Clock
This special alarm clock wakes you up by appealing to your sense of never wanting to lose. Especially nice for fans of boxing and martial arts.
The alarm features the voice of a referee trying to wake you up. You’re a boxer who’s down for the count. The referee’s started the count to ten. Within that time, you have to wake up and strike the gong with the hammer to stop it (or else Mayweather wins).
Challenge yourself and rise to the occasion. Can you make it back from the depths of despair to become the Heavyweight Champion of the World? Only time will tell…
The Dance Dance Revolution Alarm Clock
If you’ve played Dance Dance Revolution before, you’ll understand how this alarm clock works. Once it starts ringing, it won’t stop unless you play a little dance game with it using your fingers.
Your fingers will have to dance and match the sequence of flashing lights that come up in order to get the ringing to stop.
You know how sometimes, after the alarm rings, you turn off the alarm clock without even knowing it? There’s no way that’s going to happen with this one…
The Money Shredding Alarm Clock
If meeting a challenge isn’t enough to wake you up in the morning, how about incurring a loss? This Money Shredding Alarm Clock is designed so that if you don’t get up quickly, it’s going to shred your money into pieces.
And if using money isn’t enough, you might want to consider using something even more important, like a $10,000 First Class plane ticket.
The Carpet Alarm Clock
A big difference from the traditional alarm clock where you have to press something to turn it off. This alarm clock requires that you step on it in order to stop the ringing, and it’s shaped like a carpet so that it fits right in with your bedroom decor.
For a greater challenge, place the alarm clock farther away from your bed.
The Flying Helicopter Propeller Alarm
This flying alarm clock makes it harder for you to turn it off. When it’s time to wake up, this alarm will start ringing really loudly, and shoot the propeller off.
You have to get up and find the propeller and put it back onto the clock in order to turn the alarm off. By the time you do so, you’ll really be awake…
The Clocky Alarm Clock On Wheels
A really fun and cute alarm clock that makes you chase the alarm. After you press the snooze button on the Clocky Alarm Clock just once, this alarm is designed to roll off its platform and run around the room while beeping and flashing.
To turn it off, you’ll have to chase it around and that should get you more awake than you’ve ever been…
The Sonic Bomb Super Loud Alarm
There’s a reason why it’s called the Sonic Bomb alarm clock. It’s not just your standard alarm clock. It’s one of the best selling alarm clocks ever, and… it features a super extra loud alarm that is boasted to go off as loudly as a massive 113 db, along with flashing alarm lights that will really make it seem like some massive emergency is happening here.
The key highlight though is perhaps the super-charged bed shaker that comes with the alarm clock. It’ll vibrate and shake you right out of bed. A few nights of this, and you’ll be immune to the feeling of earthquakes…
The Delicious Hot Bacon Alarm Clock
Instead of getting yourself woken up by the startling sound of an alarm (that might make you feel grumpy and somewhat out of it all day), how about some gentle but persuasive coaxing with a slab of freshly cooked bacon.
This alarm clock allows you to place a strip of pre-cooked bacon overnight within it, and when the times comes, it’ll the cook the bacon for you and alert you as to when it is ready. There’s no greater motivator than this!
The Shape Up Dumbell Alarm Clock
This Dumbbell Alarm Clock design will get you awake, and keep you fit and healthy all at the same time. The Shape Up Dumbbell Alarm Clock is shaped like a dumb bell. Once it starts ringing, you’ll be forced to do 30 bicep reps with the dumbbell in order to get it to stop.
By the way, motion sensors inside can tell if you’ve actually done the reps. So… no cheating.
Stronger arms in the morning for those grueling office tasks ahead. Who needs a personal trainer when you can have an alarm clock like this. Your boss will be in awe at your muscular physique at the end of 30 days…
The Brain Teasers IQ Alarm Clock
This alarm clock doesn’t just get you up physically. It really tunes up your mental faculties so early in the morning.
Turning off the IQ alarm clock is not as easy as simply pushing a button. In order to get the ringing to stop, you will have to solve a series of brain teaser IQ questions.
Unfortunately though, they’re just multiple choice question. Too easy right? At least you’ll still have to rouse your mind a bit and focus in order to solve them…
(BONUS) The Coffee Time Alarm Clock
Similar in concept to the bacon alarm clock (but even more effective because of the caffeine), this clock wakes you up with the smell of fresh coffee. Set your wake up time, and smell the difference when it’s time for you to get up.
Drink your coffee right after waking up. Great for people who can’t do a thing until they have their daily sip of coffee. Though I can’t guarantee that it’ll be good for you…
(BONUS) The Twist Alarm Clock
Even more mentally stimulating than before, the Twist Alarm Clock will force your mind to work whether you want it to or not. And have you wide awake by the time you’re done.
In order to turn this little alarm clock off, you’ll have to twist and turn the it in order to solve the give Math puzzle. A great gift for math lovers.
But if you’re terrible at Math? It’ll keep on ringing… forever…
