Try an alarm clock that actually runs and hides, ensuring that you have to chase it down to turn the darn thing off.

For those really, really heavy-sleeper types who can slap the snooze button all day long.

Her prototype Clocky was covered in brown shag carpeting and had big rubber wheels at either end of its body. When Nanda hit snooze, the clock would rev up, leap off the nightstand, land on the floor and roll around, its random wheel function moving the clock around until it found a suitable place to wedge itself -- under a couch, for instance, or under the bed. There, the clock would crouch, waiting for snooze time to be up. Then it would ring again. The invention generated enormous media coverage.
