Wake up on the fun side with the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock (TUI-AC). Ok, it might not be some for fun considering its explosive intentions, but it does provide a release for whatever mood we're in when we wake up.

Designed by Huang Wei, the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock can be thrown, pulled and generally man-handled for fun or for emotional release. Not only that, it's designed to get you out of bed right away rather than letting you hit the snooze button a dozen times. To activate the alarm, you must pull and throw it. Then, in the morning when it goes off, you have to get up to turn it off. Stats for Explosive Grenade Alarms Trending: Older & Mild
