Namco Bandai will release a new alarm clock this November which requires the user to shoot a target in order to turn the alarm off.
Behold the Gun O’Clock
“When the alarm stars ringing, you have to get up, grab your gun, and start shooting. Every time you pull the trigger and miss, you’ll feel the blowback—if you hit the target, the alarm will stop and you can wake up refreshed and satisfied. You can choose from Normal or Hard mode—the latter requires you to hit the target five times.” LISA KATAYAMA from Tokyo Mango
I personally like the idea of waking up and being presented with a challenge…although I wonder if it has a sleep mode since personally I require hitting snooze at least 5 times before actually waking up.
On a side note, I love the illustrations that come with the press release
That guy is very happy to be awake.
