This Alarm Clock Gadget Will Get You Out of Bed in the Morning

Have trouble getting up in the morning? This new alarm clock gadget may be a solution.

Here is a helpful gadget prototype for anyone who hates getting out of bed in the morning (everyone?) – the Ruggie. This alarm clock is a great new gadget that might seem a bit evil at first – it has no snooze button. That’s right. The Ruggie is a new alarm clock that makes you physically get out of bed to shut it off.

This equal parts annoying and helpful alarm clock gadget makes you rest both of your feet on a memory mat sensor for an ample amount of time before it shuts off. Evil? Maybe. Useful? Definitely. So if you love to sleep in but just can’t afford to, the Ruggie is the perfect wake up call.

It’s not all bad, though. The Ruggie – once it finally shuts off and gets you out of bed – can be customized to play fun speeches and sayings you love after you wake up, making your morning a little more fun.

We all know that one person who won’t get out of bed no matter what. So, once again, technology has a solution. The Ruggie is raising money to bring it from contemplation to creation on Kickstarter right now, and it has already passed its initial funding goal. It looks like your favorite sleepyhead might be getting a harsh wake-up call sooner rather than later.

Gadgets are catapulting our lives forward in every way these days, literally from the moment we wake up to the moment we fall asleep and all the seconds in between. If you need a wake-up call in the worst way (with no snooze button) check out The Ruggie on Kickstarter to support the cause. Wake up, everyone – we know you have something better to do than sleep.
