Clocky the alarm clock hides to block your snooze addiction

Do you hate getting up and the blaring alarm clock only results in you hitting the snooze 5 times and arriving to work late? Surely, you curse the alarm clock and accuse it of snoozing for only 9 minutes instead of 10, robbing you of 1 minute extra sleep. (Actually, little known fact, most alarm clocks snooze for 9 minutes not 10.)

Truly, you want to make it to work on time, but ohhhhh how tempting hitting the snooze button just 1 more time is. More Americans suffer from "snooze button addiction" than any other. I myself suffer from snooze button addiction and that is why I was intrigued by this new alarm block from nanda called the Clocky that can help you break your snooze button addiction.

The Clocky alarm clock runs away and hides when you don't wake up. Clocky gives you one chance to get up. But if you snooze, Clocky will JUMP off of your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide. That rascally clock! Damn thing can even jump 3 feet! Clocky is kind of like your dog or cat that comes pestering you on a Saturday morning wondering why this day is any different than any other day and why you're still in bed sleeping past 10am when you're usually up at 7am.

Of course, an obnoxious alarm clock that runs and hides while blaring the alarm could result in the alarm clock being thrown across the room, like Bill Murray did in the cute romantic comedy Groundhog Day.
