Hitting Sound Alarm Clock
This clock is loud enough to wake all your family up.
The Anemone Alarm Clock
Aaron Tang’s Anemone Clock rumbles when the alarm goes off, eventually shaking its way all across your room, forcing you to get up to stop it. But that’s not all – it keeps shaking when you pick it up, making it a frustrating exercise just to find the off button. Tang didn’t say if the clock had a snooze button so you can repeat this process a few times each morning.


Banclock
In order to stop this alarm clock, you have to bribe it with money.


Sfera Alarm Clock
When the alarm goes off, the clock lowers to hover just above your head and it begins to glow. To active the “sleep” button, you hit it and it retracts a bit toward the ceiling. This continues to happen until it retracts so high that when it goes off, you must stand up to reach it.


Money-Shredding Alarm Clock
An alarm clock, which no panda would want to have – once it kicks in, it will start shredding money and keep going until you turn the alarm off. And if losing $100 is not enough to make you wake up, a little bit of jail time to the penalty might help – as Mashable already noted, in the U.S., willfully destroying U.S. currency is a federal crime.


Pole Dancer Alarm Clocks
Instead of spending your money at strip clubs, the £20 Pole Dancer Alarm Clock will give you a show each morning. It is guaranteed to get you up (in more than just one way) to a seedy looking strip joint with a disco ball and bad lighting and music. What better way to start our mornings?


Floating Projector Alarm Clock
Designed by the world reknown Stefano Giovannoni, this wireless projection clock is the first of its kind. The projection unit can be moved positioned in any way you like to give you the best possible view of the time. This self-setting clock also features dual alarms, indoor temperature, and contactless keys.


Rubik's Cube Alarm Clock
Rubik’s Cube offers a multitude of functions such as time, temperature, alarm and date. You can easily switch between these functions with a simple twist of the top row.


Multi-Fragrance Alarm Clocks
This clock can also put you to sleep, as lavender cartridges can be used to provide a soothing scent conducive to sleep. Drifting off slowly to sleep or stirring to awakeness is much more gentle with a scent alarm clock than a traditionally noisy one. Scent cartridges are easily popped into the slot but will only be activated if the cartridge is homed in.
