    Link: New Developments In Alarm Clocks - This look highly effective, but it`s also probably a great way to start your day off wrong.

    Tie a string to that sucker and pull it back in. Problem solved.

    So if by new you mean 4 years old. Seriously, I remember seeing this poo on ThinkGeek in 2008.

    I had one of these before. It was impossible get it to stop even when I put the spinning part back on.

    "To turn off the alarm, you`ll have to get up, find it & return it to the base."

    Either that or fly into a sleep-deprived psychotic rage and smash the damn beeping base station into a million pieces.

    they had one before called clocky that ran away and you had to find it

    this helicopter one probably isn`t a good idea if you have a ceiling fan

    @darkmagic14n if it`s anything like the (obviously broken) one I had, the spinny part doesn`t even go up very high so that`s not something to worry about.

    my friend sets three alarms in increments of 5 minutes each. The first next to him, the next across the room, and the last in the bathroom. Once you are in the bathroom, you pretty much use it anyways.

    I prefer the one with a bag that hangs from the ceiling which activates the snooze. Each time you hit it, it goes up a little bit higher, until you have to stand to reach it.

    wouldn`t finding the clock make you late? and if it flies away, would you be able to hear the alarm? my ceiling fan will destroy it.

    OK, this is going to seem a little dumb, I`m sure, but here goes: My fellow IABers, have you heard about the wake-up light alarm clock? I just got one of these and it`s life-changing. It`s turning me into an early-riser, and I love it. I wish to heck I`d known about these years ago. If YOU don`t know about these, or if you want to see the one I bought, click here. (No, I don`t get paid for promoting these things, but I wish I did.) That is all, Mr. Squrlz, signing out.

    It would be really bad if you sleep with your window open and it takes off, landing on the back of some guy`s truck.

    @Squrlz That seems pretty cool, but I don`t have $78 to spend on a damn alarm clock.

    To those saying you wouldn`t hear it when it`s now flown away, etc. - no I think they mean the base is what makes noise, but it won`t stop until you put the top back in. If the top doesn`t make noise, that`s why it`s hard to find.

    Or, you could take the batteries out/unplug it....probably what I`d do in half-asleep frustration at the noise

    Received one of these for christmas a couple years back. It went off early on a saturday which is my day off, and I couldn`t find the propellor, so I smashed it to little bits and cut my hand.

    Didn`t end up going back to sleep... these things are evil I tell you.

    I thought a new development needed to be new. These have been around for years.

    I remember seeing one a few years ago that was a cube, and broke into 5 pieces, and you had to put it back together for the alarm to stop.

    I got one of these, and broke the propeller off the annoing little f*#$er the very next morning. Definitely not the way to start my day.
