Trouble getting up? Try a Tantrum
I suspect this alarm clock won't appeal to anyone who has young children: they can be woken up by a screaming tantrum on any day of the week.
But if that doesn't apply to you and you need a little more incentive to get up every morning, the Tantrum alarm clock should do the trick, by launching an aural assault the likes of which you haven't heard from an electrical appliance before.
It's available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $49.95, which isn't cheap to be screamed at every morning - I've had bosses who would do it for free...
Via Boing Boing gadgets.
[Editor's note- this alarm clock seems to be identical to the Room Tech Beingz alarm clock by Hasbro. I have a review unit and I love it. It has a built-in FM radio, and an audio plug for connecting any audio player. You can pat its head and it gives a little electronic coo, but it's not aggressively needy like a Furby, you don't have to interact with it at all. The Hasbro branded clock is $39.99 from Hasbro.]
