This Alarm Clock Goes Crazy to Wake You

Designer Guari Nanda’s Tocky literally puts a new spin on alarm clocks. Once this chronometer hits the appointed time, it starts rolling all over the place while blaring an MP3 or audio prerecorded through the device’s built-in mic. Audio can be uploaded into the gadget via USB.

Clearly, Nanda believes that a noisy alarm clock that automatically moves beyond the owner’s reach is an effective antidote to even the deepest of sleep—it’s the same feature that characterizes her first product, the Clocky.

Both the Tocky and Clocky are available from Guari’s online store. The Tocky is available in four colors (orange, white, aqua, and green), all priced at $79 each. An “almond”, raspberry, and aqua Clocky costs $39, while the chrome variant will set you back by $45. “Skins” for the Tocky, which allow the owner to change the alarm clock’s color to suit their mood or interior design, are priced at $10 for a pack of two.

    Doesn't work, I can sleepwalk to shut it off. The best thing I've ever found was a little alarm clock with a flying helicopter thing that launches when the alarm goes off. The randomness of it works great.

    Exactly. Being one who's high school and college schedule made for some pretty deep sleeps, your body pretty much reaches over, can turn off a complicated alarm and let you go back to sleep, even if its across the room.

    I liked the alarm clock that rolled around the room and hid itself though.

    This one though I imagine might end up being thrown against the wall. How durable is it?
