If you’ve absolutely totally got to be a slave to the clock, you might as well do it in style. Goodness knows, it’s bad enough having to haul carcass out of the warm bed on a chilly morning, but we get the feeling that being woken up by this particular clock may ease the pain somewhat.
This Nixie Ramos clock comes with a little surprise though. For one thing, apart from looking pretty gorgeous with those glowing tubes an’ all, in order to turn off the alarm, you need to get out of bed and trudge across the room to enter in today’s date in a wireless ‘defuse’ pad. The idea is to force you to walk and make you think at the same time. Result: wake up time.
Because it’s wireless you can place the keypad anywhere you like, such as right next to the kettle in the kitchen. It comes with snooze mode and a battery back up to stop you just yanking the cord out of the socket to switch off the alarm. Sneaky! The whole thing comes in at a cool $349.99.
