Clocky, the semi-intelligent alarm clock!

"Clocky is not trying to solve all of the problems of alarm clocks—for example how they disrupt other people in the room—but I think maybe someday it can. I think the answer rests in the usage of multiple Clockies. Let's say there are two people with different sleep schedules sharing a room. Maybe one person's Clocky can tell the other to hush up if it has sounded off one too many times. Or, maybe they can form an alliance and simultaneously target the offending over-sleeper. I have adopted the philosophy that when two devices communicate, they can solve more problems—that is, two Clockies are better than one."

Share and Enjoy. Share and Enjoy.

I want one. Since I can sleep through three alarms.

I want one too! I ALWAYS use snooze for a good 30-45 min before I get up, and I keep reading that that's not good, that it's disrupted, low-quality sleep anyway, but no way can I get up on the very first ring.

I emailed them.

Where and when can these be purchased? I need one. Desperately.

I can (and regularly do) sleep through three alarm clocks. If my boyfriend is out of town on business, it's nearly guaranteed that I'll oversleep and be late to work.

I need a Clocky. Please let me know.

So we'll see what they say.

Cool! Yeah, I don't sleep THROUGH them, so to speak, they wake me up, but I'm REALLY quick to turn them off and fall back asleep, so if there's no snooze, I'm in trouble. I've even tried putting them across the room, but all I did was turn them off and fall back into bed-when I'm that asleep, I can't think rationally, my "survival instinct" says, turn off horrible sound and then get back into bed and to sleep immediately! And, I have to turn it off quickly anyway so not to wake roommates. How do most people manage to get up and out of bed the first time??

You sleep through 3 alarms also? I NEVER hear my alarms. Ever since I was a little kid I've had at least 3 alarms in my room (placed in different locations). They are all set about a minute apart too but I still don't hear them. My poor husband and dogs! haha

That thing would give me nightmares so bad I'd be happy to wake up...

Back in the 80's, someone invented this devious alarm clock shaped like a baseball or hand-grenade. It was great to toss and get it to shut up but when it rang again ten minutes later, you had to get up and find the damn thing.

I finally solved my alarm problems a couple of years ago when I purchased this amazing Godzilla alarm clock.
First an air-raid siren is heard, followed by the stomping, then the godzilla theme kicks in followed by the roar. These sounds pile up on one another. And, as if that wasn't enough, an excited voice starts screaming in japanese "Wake up! Wake up! Godzilla is coming!". It's a big clock and I've parked it on my dresser so I have to get up to stop that infernal racket. It's so loud that if I wake up early and forget to shut it off before I head for the shower, I'll hear it from across the apartment while showering. I can't even hear my doorbell or the phone when I'm in the shower.

I had this awesome little battery-operated alarm clock I bought in Sweden. I guess it was way too expensive for a little clock, but it flashed a light and changed its sounds and all sorts of stuff, it kept great time, and it woke me up.

It died last year, and ever since then I've had problems.

The screaming in Japanese...I love that.
