Nanda Clocky

Nanda Clocky

The problem with alarm clocks is the snooze button that's just way too tempting on cold mornings. Not so with the Nanda Clocky ($50). If you hit snooze more than once on this little guy, he springs into action and runs away, making you get out of bed to fetch him and stop the alarm. If you feel like cheating, you can always disable the wheels — but really, where's the fun in that? [Thanks, Bryce]
