Snoozeless Alarm Clock Will Get You Out of Bed but It’s Torture

Posted by Mia Shulman, Managing Editor Friday, January 15, 2016 10:58 AM EST




Vancouver and Hong Kong based designers have teamed up to create an alarm clock that will help you quit your bad habit of snoozing and oversleeping, but that means you’ll actually have to get out of bed in the morning…The Ruggie is a pressure sensitive alarm clock in the form of a bedside mat. When the mat alarm goes off in the morning, it requires you to stand on it for three seconds before it turns off. Foolproof, right? (Unless you’re adept at sleeping walking…)


You can buy one on Kickstarter now for US $59, or you can wait until launch and pay US $99.
