30 Laborious Alarm Clocks

From Explosive Grenade Alarms to Clocky

— February 6, 2011 — Tech

Whether they automatically roll away from you or blast a high-pitched sound, these alarms aren’t for night owls. Check out these laborious alarm clocks and see which one you would like to put a hammer through if it woke you up.
