Bullseye Shot Turns it Off

Get back at those rude awakenings delivered by your alarm clock. The Laser Target Alarm Clock turns off when you take aim at the bullseye and shoot it with a remote handheld laser. Oh, and that's the only way to turn off the alarm so you'd best have a good eye. There is no snooze alarm, so you get one chance to do it right. The alarm stays set to the same time every day until it is manually changed or turned off.

In theory, this seems like a fantastically fun idea. But if you're crabby in the morning (like me), or very nearsighted (like me), the last thing you want to do is try to shoot down a target - especially if the buzzer is going off and you can't find your glasses.
