Some crazy fool has designed an alarm clock that will run away and find a place to hide in your room if you keep hitting snooze, thus requiring the suffering sleeper to get up and catch it to turn it off.

If I had one of these, I can see two things happening:

1.  I would get proficient at throwing odd objects
2.  I would need to purchase a new alarm clock after mastering #1

Read about this thing a while back on Gizmodo.  Pretty neat little idea.  I'd love to have one, if only for the geeky novelty but I don't use the snooze button.  I'm out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off, not that I want to be....

This would be worth buying just for how badly it would mess with my cats......... BounceGiggle

I wonder how many hits with a ball bat it can take?  I'm sure that's what would happen to it if my husband had to chase it around the room.

The guy who thought this up is a genius, if you feel you need one and it p****s you off, you'll kill it, but then you'll need to buy a new one, or it could be he's just a sadistic SOB.

This thing would be splintered plastic and scattered LCD crystals if I got near it with my cricket bat.  TeddyR
