This Alarm Won't Scare You out of Bed in the MorningS

When it comes to alarm clocks, there's definitely no shortage. But one commonality amongst almost all alarms is that they are annoying. The Acoustic Alarm, however, takes a new approach to the wake-up call.

Set the dials on the side, flip the switch, and when it's time to rise and shine, the wooden alarm strums away at its four strings (in whatever tuning you set, mind you). It's no Clapton, but hey, it's a freaking alarm clock! [Jamie McMahon via Design Milk]
