Apparently the most effective alarm clocks are those which force you to physically get up to turn them off. The Carpet Alarm Clock does exactly that – to turn it off, you have to get up and step on it. It comes complete with an LCD screen to show the time too. “If you really want to make it a challenge, place it far away from your bed”. I reckon you could even put it on the ceiling to make you jump up and turn it off, and hence squeeze in some exercise too.
