more fun gifts

The Flying Alarm Clock is an ideal gift for anyone who's incapable of getting up in the morning – and, unless you’re one of those superhuman weirdos whose internal bodyclock wakes them up at 5am to go to the gym, that means you!

So what makes the Flying Alarm Clock so get-out-of-beddingly effective, then? Well, as its name suggests this digital clock actually flies. No, really. A propeller-driven module spins off the chic base unit every time the shrill alarm (think Star Trek red alert siren) goes off. So far, so annoying.

Replace the propeller to turn the alarm off.
The catch is, the noisy alarm won't turn off until you retrieve the propeller and replace it on the base. Which means you have to get out of bed and search for it. How ingeniously irritating is that? And you won't be able to walk across the room in zombified-autopilot mode like you do when you try the old put-the-alarm-clock-over-there ploy, because the pesky propeller can land anywhere. Aargh!
