Conventional alarm clocks, buzz and ring and some even play the radio or even a CD. But the following 7 alarm clocks are different. The following 7 alarm clock's have ego's!

They want to shake you, disturb you, infuriate you, and even blow you up!

Don't ever sleep in again. Wake up!

"Louder than a Jackhammer"

The Sonic Bomb Clock has a loudness of 113 decibels - a jackhammer only has 100!

"Vroom! Vroom! Vroom! Wake up!!!"

This is genuis!

When it's time to wake up, the Drag Racer alarm clock plays the sound of Dragster's revving their engines. The lights are illuminated in a squence until the green light shines, and the revving sounds transform into the sounds of Dragster's taking off at great speed and noise!

"And now for something completely different! Progressive waking."

The Peaceful Progressive Wake Up Clock - the gentle way to be woken up. Just set your desired wake-up time, place some aromatherapy beads (included) into the aroma bowl, and choose a natural sound setting. Thirty minutes before wake-up, the clocks light begins to glow softly, subtly brightening over the next half hour. As the light increases, the warmth from the lamp releases faint aromatherapy scents into the air to stimulate the olfactory senses, speeding the waking process. Fifteen minutes before wake up time, the clocks speaker generates the sleepers choice of soft, yet lively nature sounds, and at the set wake up time a buzzer sounds to finish the cycle.

"Get woken up by R2-D2's long lost cousin?"

The Clocky Robotic Alarm, started it's life as a special project for engineering student, Gauri Nanda. Gauri was having trouble waking herself up and so developed Clocky to annoyingly yet effectively wake you up. Clocky loves to leap off tables, and really enjoys making random turns while you do your best to catch it and shut it up.

Check out the following video, demonstrating Clocky at work:
