This is just too smart.


The alarm clock that runs away and hides when you don’t wake up. Clocky gives you one chance to get up. But if you snooze, Clocky will jump off of your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide. Clocky is kind of like a misbehaving pet, only he will get up at the right time.

At the height of my laziness, I would set two alarms in different corners of my room, set to go off at slightly different times, and with snooze times of 7 and 9 minutes, respectively. The resulting dissonance was usually enough to get me up within 45 minutes of the first alarm going off, but it was a pretty elaborate, noisy process. Clocky seems like the perfect solution.

Edit: now with video!


  1. This thing is a law suit waiting to happen. I can see it now: some idiot that needs 2 or 3 of these, much to the chagrin of his neighbors, finally gets out of bed. Eyes all bloodshot and vision all blury from a night of debauchery. He slips on the first one; luckily he catches himself only to slip on the second one and land onto the third one crushing his 5th lumbar vertebrae. Then he’ll never have a problem getting up again.
